Satellite A300 - Questions about the second HARD drive Bay

To the underside of the laptop, there is an empty Bay for a second HDD internal.
It is in the lower left corner (the first internal hard drive is on the lower side right) and the Bay has a sata connector.
The plastic cover of the empty Bay extended columns so nothing (not even a hard disk) can be positioned on the inside.

Someone knows:
-If the sata connector works
-If I can connect a secondary internal hard drive which work together with the primary
-Where I could order the support for the secondary hard drive (i.e. toshiba code)
-Where I could order a plastic cover without extensive columns, bcz I want to break.

If my question is not clear, I can upload a photo.

Thanks in advance


You can order all the parts of the ASP from Toshiba in your country.
Get in touch with some guys in the ASP and ask for the parts you need.

  • Satellite A300 - cannot read the second HARD drive

    Greetings from the Spain,

    I got 1 month there is a serious problem with my laptop (which is 5 months old), associated with crcdisk.sys.

    I gave up after several hours studying, and send the computer serving techniques. (Vista was does not load and no recovery was possible)
    Technical services changed 1 hard drive and the motherboard (don't ask me why)
    This computer cams with 2 HD (these 2 devices)

    The first has a recovery partition.
    The problem now is that I see the second HD (D :) but I can't read or access it.)
    However, McAfee, it can scan and I can see the names of files (they were there before sending it to T.Service) during the scan.

    The only solution I have Toshiba is "send it back", but with the previous experience I've had with this guy, maybe now they put a new keyboard and wait another month...

    Any ideas?

    Thank you


    Now I can read the second disc of Internet expolrer..., i.e. D:\documents... I read a few videos, I got there and seems to work.
    However, I cannot read with ordinary windows Explorer or cannot write files from any program.

    BTW. I can access from the Explorer, but just the files, i.e. d:\documents\letters, but not to the root?

    You have installed the laptop with the recovery disk? Try this!

    What operating system do you use? If you are using Vista control this information from Toshiba:

  • Satellite A300 - question about the MIDI connection

    Can someone help me?

    I have a computer laptop satellite A300 and want to connect it to my computer to stream TV and movies.
    I don't see where I would plug MIDI to my computer.
    Is it possible to do with this model?

    If not, can I get a plug that would stretch the capacity of the computer or I have to get a new computer?

    Thank you

    Sorry, but I m confused
    You said you want to connect the Satellite A300 to a computer
    Is this correct?

    You can connect two computers via a LAN cable. But I have no idea why you talking about connecting MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface)

  • Satellite A30: Question on the new hard drive

    The hard drive on the computer that the above has failed. When formatting the system hangs at 70%. When you run a utility to recover the hard drive again, it fails at 70%.
    I now seeks to replace the hard drive and would like to know any 2.5 "Sata hard drive (speed/brand/size) usable (no).

    I would have taken it would not be a problem, but there is no way to change the settings in the Bios, the Bios auto detects the drive when it is mounted?
    When mounting the hard drive can it be introduced inside the access panel on the back of the laptop or the entire back should be deleted?

    Thank you


    Yes, the BIOS must allow and recognize the HARD drive automatically.
    One thing is important. You must pay attention to the size of the HARD drive.
    I found information that Satellite M30 supports hard disks IDE Bus Master 30 GB / 40 GB / 60 GB

  • X 6 ban-Questions about the 2nd HARD drive


    I intend to buy the 2nd disc HARD adapter (

    My questions:

    1.) do I need a special "cage" for 2.5 HARD disk? I remember it was necessary with older 2nd HDD adapters (as for my T40)...

    2.) I'll be able to start from there?

    (3.) I can use any disk SATA 2.5 here? I looked up the Western Digital Scorpio to be a good player?

    (4.) the speed of the interface must be 3 Gb/s or 1.5 Gbit/s?

    Thank you for your opinion on this...

    (2) Yes, you can when you set the boot order in your BIOS

    (3) you can use any disk SATA 2.5 9.5 mm thick, but the final interface of your adapter is Enhanced IDE

    (4) would not issue final connection of your caddy to the laptop is through E-IDE, which is well below the maximum 1.5 Gb/s of a SATA 1.5 mode.

  • Satellite P70 - how to use the second HARD drive?

    I have recently bought a satellite P70 - A - 10 d.

  • How to use the second HARD drive of Satellite A210 - BP1 for mirroring

    Satellite A210-BP1 came with 2 HDD (160 GB).
    Now, I want to use the second hard drive mirrored the first, one that has Vista installed.
    This should be done without supervision and in real time - as a RAID 1.

    How can I do this?
    I also have Vista professional available and I would be willing to use 3rd party software as well.

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    Hi Jan

    I doubt that this is possible
    Why? The point is that you need to use two hard drives in mirroring, RAID striping, mode etc technology
    Satellite A210 can't RAID. It s only a SATA controller without RAID capacity!

    Therefore, the final answer is; NO, it is not possible to use mirroring


  • How to install the second hard drive in the Satellite A200-1 of body weight?

    I see my new Satellite A200-1 of body weight has two hard drive bays, the research in the second span, I don't see how a second drive can be mounted as the plug into the Jack seems to be missing.

    What parts do I have to mount to place a second drive that they are held in stock by out of the local computer and are quite cheap, can someone advise me on part numbers etc of the bits I need.
    Thank you


    I know that this empty place for second HARD drive is a bit confusing, but the same situation is with my A200-1CR. The fact is that some A200 models come with 2 hard drives and laptop case design this place must be prepared for this second HDD.

    But this does not mean that each A200 can be improved for the second HARD drive.

  • How to set up the second hard drive

    My Mac Pro has two, the hard drives of 1 TB.  I had originally planned on the use of the second hard drive for Time Machine.  However, instead of using Time Machine, I now save by cloning my first hard drive to an external hard drive using Carbon Copy Cloner.  I did not use Time Machine in a year and do not expect that I have to use more.

    My first hard drive fills up-I have about 150 GB unused on it, and with video editing I'm is squeezed.  What is the best way to configure my system so that I can use my second, now sleeping, hard drive? Is it possible of them gang up together so that my system will behave as if there is a 2 TB HDD?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. It is called RAID.

  • 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!

    You need two cables, one is a sata cable: 7Ccat: 30305659% 7Cprd: 30305659 & kw = {keyword}

    This cable is only for data and connect the hard drive to the SATA connector on the motherboard.

    The other cable is energy:

    It connects the hard drive to the PSU.

    You can also buy a combo like this cable:

    All you have to do is to connect the hard drive and that's it. Make sure that the main drive with the operating system is connected to the primary SATA connector (I think there are the numbers 1, 2, 3...)
