Satellite A200-1GH, remove the additional HARD disk cover


I bought a new HARD drive and I want to put it in place of additional hard drive, but I can't remove the cover... :-(... I was remove two screws and nothing...
Can you help me please?



Stand by. If I understand you right, you want to add the second HARD drive. Am I right about that?
At first, I must say that this is not possible due to lack of connectors. In any case you can check only. Remove the two screws and remove the cover plastic. I know, it cannot be removed easily. Remove it in the middle and remove the side.

  • PSAJOE satellite A300 - cannot remove the external HARD disc


    I have portable adjustable 300 (PSAJOE).

    Flah interesting little player with 2 GB capicty works ok and easily removable by simple click.

    Help, please.
    Thank you


    Maybe you should first check if there is no access to all the files that are stored on external HARD drive

    I put t know how it works with your external HARD drive, but if I want to remove my HARD drive safely the new window opens and I get a USB mass storage device called option.

    If I mark this USB mass storage device and press STOP then a new window opens and I get 3 different devices;
    -USB mass storage device
    -Generic volume
    -USB HDD device

    If I score the first two options then my HARD drive crashes but if I choose the last of them then I can remove the HARD drive safely

  • Equium A200-1AC - cannot remove the second HARD drive cover

    I have an Equium A200-1AC, there is also a second HARD-drive Bay, but I can't get the cover off the coast, can anyone help?


    As far as I know, this HARD drive cover is only guaranteed with a screw and after the withdrawal of these screws, you should be able to remove the plastic cover.
    Maybe it's sticks somewhere, you can use a thin object and could leverage with caution
    But don t do something with force!

  • Satellite A200 - Question on RAM and HARD disk partitions

    Maybe it's in the wrong section... I do not know.

    I've never owned an OEM operating system and I do not understand why the HARD disk is partitioned, 90, 2, 90 (who thought of that?).

    The thing is that I have to format and partition differently (since I dual boot Linux) and need to create a structure more like 40,40,100 or such. (100 in fat32, so data is available for both)

    Now I wonder what data should I keep these readers. There is a folder called Toshiba on the C:\ drive that seems to have the drivers and such, some wallpapers and who knows what else. Then there's the WinRE called D: drive which has a kind of sdi and wim files.

    Another question, if I buy the 2 GB that is listed in the compatible options for my laptop (A200 - 28 p)
    Link: [ oshibaShop = true & SelCategorie = 4700]
    It will match the 2 GB already in the laptop? It will void the warranty anyway?


    > I've never owned an OEM operating system and I do not understand why the HARD disk is partitioned, 90, 2, 90 (who thought of that?).
    I assume you are using Vista.
    The 2 GB partition is a hidden partition which contains the data and the backup files in Vista. This partition will be automatically created during the installation of Vista.

    On the other partition 90GB.
    Well, this partition (partition of data) can be used to store files such as photos, movies, personal documents, etc. it s always recommended to partition a large HDD in more partition. This improves performance because the OS can access files much faster.

    Of course, you can change the size of the partitions. In Vista, you can change this in disk management.

    Regarding the upgrade of RAM;
    The laptop seems to supports the Intel® PM965 chipset and it manages 4 GB of RAM. It seems that you could use a 2 GB of RAM in one slot.

  • Satellite Pro P300-1F1 - mounting additional HARD disk


    I'm hoping to add an extra hard drive to my satellite pro p300-1f1 laptop. I know that he has an extra compartment and it has a sata connector, so I know it's possible. But I need a support or mount or a caddy/adapter to the hard drive in place of the crew. When I contacted the Dutch Office of toshiba, they said that they did not support it and do not have this part. And the manual of the user on the site Web there says nothing about this compartment.

    I hope that one of you may know part whitch I need (the second compartment of the hard drive need to another mount/support/caddy/adapter then the hard drive that is already installed.

    I live in Holland, so no response with the Dutch dealers or websites would be great but uk / us is also appreciated.

    Update: here are some photos I did inside the compartment. Maby he helps :) ([Fig 1 |]) ([photo 2 |]) ([photo 3 |])

    Hi Thijsm,

    If you have a second HARD drive connector, you can add a second HDD. But as you wrote, you need a shopping cart to install it.

    I put t know you contacted exactly, but on the Toshiba site, you will find a list of all ASP s: > support & downloads > find an authorized service provider

  • Satellite M30: Replace DVD with additional HARD disk?


    As my Satellite M30-642 does not offer a modular Bay for the installed switches and I have a DVD burner for USB that I can use I think try an experiment: withdrawal of the DVD drive and replace it with an extra HDD/SSD.

    As SSDS are very light, have no moving parts and does not necessarily need screws to be installed and the slot DVD brings the IDE and this could work to power connector. The DSS must be placed inside an old and updated the slimline cd-rom so that the change is not visible and the laptop is safe from dust etc.

    Has anyone tried something like this before? Are there solutions to buy for Sat M30 (2004 vintage)?

    Cheers, obreitfelder


    As far as I know the Sat M30 doesn t support the slim select Bay and, therefore you cannot use this adapter instead of the CD/DVD drive.

    Sorry, it is not possible

    Good bye

  • remove the external hard disk image

    There are on my external hard drive that I would use in a project I am working on photos.  I can find information on how to put photos on an external hard drive, but nothing about deleting the photos in my external hard drive to place and use somewhere else IE in my photo gallery to use for my project.

    Can do you and if so someone can tell me an easy way to do it.

    Help is highly appreciated.  Thank you.

    You can copy photos (data files) since the main external hard drive in a folder on your hard drive. See here

    I don't understand this reason is not the same, which taken at left and right: (
    Can I place this HARD drive ( on my laptop?

    Hey Buddy...

    I have bad news for you...
    The 'taken' mentioned is not taken!
    In the second HARD drive Bay, you won't find a second HARD drive connector because this motherboard does not have this feature!

    Some A200 laptop computers are equipped with the second HARD drive connector but is NOT all Ca support units? ¦

    In your case, there is a second Bay but no possibility for a second HDD. :(

    Check the details of the game! For most every game developer publishes the hardware configuration requirements for each game.

    Then compare it with the specifications of your laptop and then you have it ;)

  • Satellite A200 PSAF3A - upgrade the hard drive - data retention?


    I am working on a Toshiba Satellite A200 PSAF3A with a dying 160 GB Fujitsu 5400 RPM SATA drive installed.
    I would like to replace the hard drive 400 GB 5400 RPM SATA drive in a car with a Fujitsu and transfer any existing information on it. I noticed that there is a standard C:\, a System Volume of Toshiba and a HDDRecovery partition on the current drive.

    Can someone tell me if this is possible by using disk imaging software? If so, what are the issues could meet? (eg. new player will only recognize the old C:\ partition size etc.)

    I have already created a backup of the drive image and all 3 partitions (as she made a lot of noise and possibly at its output) using shadow protect Desktop
    Toshiba HDDRecovery & the System Volume partitions don't show in SPDesktop as the affected drive letters, so I don't know if I can restore using this program. Everyone has used successfully to achieve this result?

    I also have a Ultimate Boot CD for Windows here, and have successfully used the Roadkills Disk Copy with a SATA Adapter USB to copy a C:\ on a laptop in the past. It would be a better approach? I was thinking of using this method because it must copy all 3 partitions, then just use GParted to resize C:\ to fill the rest of the available HARD disk space.

    Thanks in advance :)

  • Satellite l.660-12 q - would the recovery disk rebuild the new HARD disk with a new recovery partition

    Talk about confusion. Does anyone know how to get a Toshiba C660 work after the HARD drive failed and the owner has stupidly NOT followed the instructions to make a recovery disk. Will be the recovery disk (if buy you one from Toshiba) rebuild the new HARD disk with a new recovery partition and install windows 7 (original OS) and accept the product key printed on the Windows license, attached to the base of the laptop. I have read a number of suggestions, but these have been considered incorrect by others.

    Surely, Toshiba must have a way to sort this problem.

    They read these messages?

    Hey Buddy

    I don't think it's really complicated, that I could find all the information about the recovery procedure in the user's manual

    The recovery disk must be created on the first day of purchase its recommended to create one in case something would be wrong with the HARD drive.

    The recovery disk contains an image. The image is a package containing Win system, drivers, tools and all the stuff pre-installed on the notebook.
    You bought the laptop and the system has already been activated so that you have need of t the key placed at the bottom of the unit.
    In addition, the use of the recovery disc formats the drive HARD integer (partitions too) and set the laptop in the same condition as at the first day of the purchase.

    There is also another option to recover the notebook called HARD drive recovery. This HARD drive recovery requires no recovery disk. The recovery disc HARD would be to use format ONLY partition C (System).

  • Satellite A200-193 - installing an extra HARD drive


    I have a Satellite A200-193 and I would like to install one additional go 160 HARD drive into the free location.
    The problem is that there is no SATA connector to this place (switch on the motherboard, not more).
    I know there are computer A200 laptop with a second HDD and my question is "if I go into an official TOSHIBA Service Center, it is possible to install a SATA connector in this free site, this is to allow the installation of additional HARD drive?

    If someone could help me on this point, it would be great.

    Thank you.

    Hi Mathieu

    I see that you are a bit confused ;)
    As you known t n, there are probably different Satellite A200 series a series helps the second HARD drive upgrade and some A200 series cannot be upgraded
    But the A200 series was equipped with the same laptop covers

    This means that you will find the second drive HARD on all mobile A200 Bay but the drive HARD (SATA) connectors don t exist on each series.
    It seems that your laptop cannot be upgraded with the second HARD disk because of the second missing HARD drive interface.

    I hope I can clarify this confusing question ;)

    Good bye

  • Satellite A200 starts with the message "missing operating system".

    IM wondering if anyone can help... I have a Toshiba Satellite A200, who, at the start, just comes up with a black screen and the "system of missing operating" in the upper left corner.

    I looked for solutions on the net. Nothing is really done. I tried to start in safe mode using the F8 function key, but it did not work. I tried to boot from a vista recovery disk. That did not work. I tried to reinstall vista and it came just with the error 0 x 80070002. Im stuck and don't know how started it in safe mode so that I can transfer data and then reinstall vista (reimage) on this subject.

    Can you make suggestions?


    Have you tried to get into the Bios and check if a hard drive is recognized? If not, the hard drive no longer works. If so, try to make another copy of Windows disk.
