Second HARD drive is possible on the Satellite A200-1iW?

possible second hard drive on the Satellite A200 1iW?



Not all models of laptops A200 supports the second HDD.
If you want you can find very easily if your laptop supports this second HDD.

At the bottom of the device, you can find the second HARD drive Bay. Remove the cover that protects the Bay and check if there is some HARD drive connectors.

If not, then the second HDD is not possible

  • How to check if the 2nd HARD drive is possible on the Satellite Pro A200 PSAE7?


    My A200/PSAE7 has a 200 GB HARD drive. For backup reasons, I would like to know - or learn to know how check - if my A200 already have the hardware support for a 2nd HARD drive, next to the slot for a 2nd HARD drive.
    In the BIOS, I see 'Toshiba MKxxx - hard drive' and 'hard drive - None '. Is the last entry in the BIOS is a sign that a 2nd HARD drive is supported and has to be put in the second location of HARD drive?

    Thanks in advance for any answer!

    Best regards

    You can do the following:

    Open the cover when the 2nd drive HARD so-called must be installed and check for some SATA connectors or cables. If there is an unused SATA connection so you can upgrade, if no, then you will need to backup your data on USB - HDD or whatever.

    If in the BIOS is something now, he won't say that he is physically present.

  • Can a second hard drive be added to a Satellite A200-298

    I have a Satellite A200-298 which came with a hard drive of 200 GB, I wondered if it was possible for a second hard drive more to be added to help with Itunes that is storage of files and movies.

    Post edited by: Irishdiver

    Hi mate,

    Unfortunately, there may be a second HDD to be added because if your machine has only one disc and then the other drive hard bay would not have an installed hard drive connector.

    I would buy an external hard drive and store my stuff there I was you...

  • What HARD drive can I install the Satellite Pro 2100?

    I installed a second hand Toshiba 40 GB HDD in my Pro 2100, but he fails to recognize in the BIOS. Any ideas?

    Yes, I have an idea ;)
    Have you checked if the HARD disk is not corrupted?
    I think it's a first step to find out what's wrong.

    If you are sure that the drive is 100% damage not so in my opinion him BIOS is unable to manage the size of the HARD drive. It s just too big size.
    The BIOS supports multiple disk sizes but if HARD drive it too big the BIOS may not be able to recognize the HARD drive.

  • music file will not play in second hard drive double click Error "" the requested operation requires a rise ".

    Original title: music file won't play second hard drive by double click.

    Windows 7 ultimate/64

    I have a second hard drive on which I store my music files. If I open a player (Foobar is what I use now) and open the music file in the program, he plays very well, since the second HD.

    But if I double click on the music file (.mp3, usually), I get the message:

    "The requested operation requires a rise."

    I think it should open in the player by default when I do that.

    I remember well, it wasn't the case when I started to use this computer (it's fairly new), while something might have changed.
    I have the .mp3, .wav etc all default extensions for the Foobar player program.

    I went through elaborate measures to appropriate the entire disk and have granted full permissions for me as a user, following to the letter one of the many sites of the detailed instructions for this operation. But there is no help in sight.
    Original title: music file won't play second hard drive by double click

    So I can let my reader opens a music file leave a second drive, but I can't call him by double click or click right/context citing the player. When I do that, nothing happens, but I don't get the message "requires a rise."

    Every time I think that I am getting to know Windows 7, something like this happens. Avoid to receive life dull, of course.

    Thanks a lot for your suggestions. I've pretty much exhausted my own attempts.


    Update: I think I've solved the problem. I have no idea that what caused it, but here's what fixed it:

    1 uninstalled Foobar with usual Control Panel uninstall
    2A through the startup disk everything and delete folders or files with the name "foobar" in them.
    3 did the same for the registry (creating a point of restoration first, of course)
    4 restarted
    5 download and install Foobar.


    Works very well.

    A big thank you to all who responded.


  • Replace HARD drive by another on the Satellite A60 Pro?

    Hello world!

    I was wondering if I could replace my hard drive (4K 40) on my TOSHIBA Satellite Pro A60, if so, please tell me how.

    Thank you!


    AFAIK removed some covers if you want to change the HARD drive. Sorry, I don t find any detailed instruction how to replace the hard drive. I recommend you ask the service partner for details.

    Good bye

  • This replacement of hard drives are supported by the Satellite P30?

    My P30 came with a HARD disk that rotates at 4500 rpm of 80 GB. I really need a floppy that can write and access data fast enough for video editing (rendered) and multi track audio recording.

    Are there alternative products that can improve the performance of my computer? I have already ordered 2 GB of RAM.
    Would a Hitachi Travelstar 7K 100 works with my device?

    I guess you mean the Hitachi Travelstar 7K 100 100 GB drive HARD 7200 RPM 8 MB cache 2, drive HARD 5Zoll.
    I think you can use the HARD disk with the following properties:

    hard drive 9.5 mm with capacity 30 GB/40 GB/60 GB / 80 / 100GB / 120GB
    Bus Master IDE
    Support 100 synchronous DMA Ultra

    Disk HARD 7200prm will produce more heat but perhaps the laptop could handle this. Otherwise you will get some overheating shutdown downs.

  • HARD drive 80 GB to the Satellite 2410 404

    Hi all

    Can someone tell me whether or not the 2410-404 is compatible with 80 GB HDD? I've got 1.40 bios installed.

    I saw somewhere on the internet, which is the sale of kits of modernization including an upgrade of the bios... What is 1.40 bios or another allowing the 80 GB drives?

    Thanks in advance,


    There is no specific information on this subject. As far as I know if BIOS don't support the HARD drive with the largest capacity there is ability to manipulate the BIOS install different updates to BIOS or even other tools. This kind of things you won't find on the Toshiba download page.

    Please check if a provider of HARD disc in your country can help you. I found one in my country. It offers 80 GB HDD even for the old units and it is warranty that it will work properly but is not free.

  • Re: Satellite A300 - second hard drive


    Perhaps some may say where I can buy hard disk for the motherboard conector?
    I have place for HDD and connections on the motherboard, but don't not have hard drive connector.
    Camputer are 1gn A300.

    Help, please!

    Hi Lotus

    Toshiba offers Satellite A300 with one or two hard drives with two different mothers. Plastic cover is the same for both models of laptops and that's why there are two disk HARD covered and placed two HARD drive. Laptops without SATA connectors are not ready for the upgrade.

    No one here in this forum has reported that these updates possible if laptop doesn t have original SATA connector to the second HARD drive, so I think that you cannot upgrade your laptop with the second HARD drive.

    By the way: it's not easy to find these parts.

  • Can satellite A300 - 15 k (PSAJ4E) - I add a second HARD drive?


    I have Toshiba Satellite A300 - 15 k (PSAJ4E) and my question is, can I add second HARD drive? Now, I have a HARD inside drive, Hitachi 250 GB, 5400 RPM. is there a place for the second HARD drive?

    I want to buy some 2.5 in 7200 RPM, thx in advance.


    Check the bottom of the unit.
    There should be a second HARD drive Bay.
    If the second HARD drive bay contains the pins of the connector HDD/then you could add a second HARD drive 2.5 SATA.
    If the connector is not available, then the second HDD is not possible.

    See you soon

  • Tecra W50 - cannot start when installing the second hard drive (caddy).

    Hi all
    I have a Tecra W50 PT640A 04103NN1.
    When a second hard drive is installed in the Bay of DVD player cell phone will try to boot from the drive bay, not the internal drive
    This second drive has no operating system installed and so the fails to start.

    If I hit F12 at startup and select HARD drive, while the machine starts correctly. That is starts on the main hard drive.
    Change the order of boot in the BIOS makes all the difference; He will always try to boot from the second drive bay drive first.

    All known A it works correctly?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Doppelfrog,
    I had the same problem with my W50, got my HDD caddy a few days ago.
    You have a bit of luck to fix this problem?
    I believe that the Bios for this laptop is not developed to serve both drives (like the computer I had that one drive Bay) and it is not possible to prioritize the witch THAT HDD should start first...

    Kind regards

    (I don't know where yet, maybe HP spare parts site) I need to know if it is possible to boot from the second hard drive with my laptop model. Thanks in advance.



    Hi John,.

    My best guess would be that the USB 3.0 ports require a driver to work correctly, try to boot from it (when the driver is not loaded) may not work - this isn't a definitive answer, but I do not know of bootable recovery media certainly has problems booting from a 3.0.

    Regarding the wire to the second HDD, I would suggest sending a request thereon to HP to the Email address in the form below.

  • Add the second hard drive

    I replaced a faulty computer with a second hand replacement. Both are programmed with XP and the same browser. I installed the HDD in the position of the Tower slave, plugged the cable and Ribbon secondary and put power cord.  The computer does not recognize the additional hardware. Y at - it an easy way to simple transfer of data to the new hard drive, or is there a way to access the second hard disk drive so I can use the computer program?

    You have misused terminology in this issue, so it's a little difficult to determine what your problem may be caused.

    What do you mean by "the computer does not recognize the additional hardware?  Only shows drive in disk management (start > run > diskmgmt.msc > OK)?  If the player appears in disk management, but not in my computer, you may need to use disk management to assign a drive letter.

    It seems that if you want to take the faulty computer hard drive (in condition, of course, was not the hard drive itself which was defective) and put it in another computer.

    There is no such thing as a "slave of the Tower position."  Likely, you just put the old drive into an available drive Bay.

    Generally, the 'secondary' water is used for optical drives - not a second hard drive.  Usually, if there is only one hard drive, it is connected to the connector at the end of the water and the second hard drive is connected via the connector in the middle of the cable.  The cable connected to the primary IDE connector on the motherboard should be a 80 wire cable, while the other may be a 40 wire cable:

    When you have 2 drives connected on the same cable 80 wire, one is the 'master' (the one linked at the end of the cable) and the other is the "slave".  You specify the drive to this topic, what you are doing by correctly setting the jumper on the pins at the rear of the car.  You set the jumper on a 'master' and the other as 'slave' or two disks can be set for "Cable Select" If both support this and you have the special cable Select "Cable".

    However you connect, you must make sure that the drive of the old computer is defined as the slave drive, because you do NOT want to start from this installation of Windows.

    The foregoing assumes that both drives are the older IDE type of walk.  If one or both are SATA drives, it is quite something different.

  • DV7 not recognize the second hard drive?


    I have a DV7 1240us equipped vista and recently tried to install a second hard drive. I ordered the same model number, the size and the brand as the main drive.

  • Second hard drive for the dv7 - 7047cl

    Can a second hard drive be added to the dv7 - 7047cl?

    (It is standard drive is a 1 TB of HARD drive).

    If so, how?

    Thank you!

    Hi Mike,.

    You are welcome

    There should be no problem with Bios recognizing the 2nd HARD drive, however it may not appear in Windows (under the Start Menu, computer) until the drive has been formatted.

    You can format the second HDD as follows.

    Hold down the Windows key and press R.  In the run box, type compmgmt.msc , and then press ENTER.  Click disk management in the left pane and let readers load upward.  Right-click on your new HARD drive and select Format to start the wizard.  Windows 7 will affect a Volume label so if your happy with it, just leave the default.  File system is NTFS.  Allocation unit size must be left by default.  Select the option to perform a quick format if it is not already done.  Leave all the other default settings, and then click Ok, and then Ok to start the process.

    Once this done, your new HARD disk should now appear when you look under the computer.

    Kind regards
