What HARD drive max can I use satellite 3000 514

Hey all,.

What is usable by the 3000-514 maximum capacity hard drive. It comes standard with 20 GB but I can't find anything online that gives this information.

Kind regards
Samurai Sjakkie


I m not 100% sure but to my knowledge the BIOS of Satellite 3000 supports a limitation of the HARD drive and you can only use the IDE 2.5 ", 9.5 mm HDD s up to 30 GB.
Seems that BIOS will not recognize large s 30 GB HARD drive!

I found this info somewhere in the internet. But you know the guy. These are only suggestions. If you wish, you can try any other disk HARD s i.e. 40 or 60 GB. It would be interesting to know if the HARD disk is running or not. Are you referring to the merchant of HARD drive if it of possible to test some HARD drive sizes!

If you have more information, please report it here! Thank you ;) see you later

  • What HARD drive max can I use for Satellite 2410-504


    I have a Toshiba 2410-504 P241E the 20 GB drive HARD is almost full, and I would like to buy another larger capacity disc to replace.
    My question is what is the maximum capacity disc and what type of drive this machine will support?

    Note: I have the latest version of the bios installed and the machine is running Win XP pro.




    I think that the laptop supports an IDE HDD controller that supports only 28-bit LBA as suggested by resident. This means that the controller does support max 128 GB IDE hard drives.

    Since ATA - 6 (Ultra DMA mode 5 or Ultra-ATA100) the 48-bit LBA is supported but I n t think that Sam 2410-504 was equipped with the ATA-6 controller and therefore, it seems that 120 GB (128 GB HARD drive not available) disk HARD is the maximum that could be used.

  • What HARD drive I can install on Satellite Pro 4320?

    I can install disk HARD 40 GB in Satellite Pro 4320 or it is great for my laptop.


    I guess that the laptop is very old, because I found on the internet that it was delivered with a 6 GB HARD drive! Wow

    I think that if the laptop has been delivered with the 6GB, so it is not possible to use a 40 GB HARD drive. I'm afraid that the BIOS will not recognize this large size m.

    I think it's maybe s possible to use a 20 GB but you know s just a suggestion. In my opinion, you should test the HARD drive before you buy.

    Thank you.


    Satellite L300 supports SATA HDD!

  • What HARD drive I can use on my Satellite A660-13D?


    I'm looking for any compatible for a Toshiba SATELLITE A660-13D hard disk drive as the one inside is dead now.

    This model comes with the laptop is a TOSHIBA MK6465GSX 640 GB, SATA 3 Gb/second 5400 RPM 2.6 revision

    Official suppliers of Toshiba quoted me 130 euros por the same model.

    I can't have such model through any other store or the internet.

    There are a lot of different new TOSHIBA HDD in the market with the largest capacity and much less expensive than the MK6465GSK.

    Can I install any new toshiba HDD on my SATELLITE A660-13D?

    Is there any toshiba page where I can find out what toshiba HARD drive are compatible with my SATELLITE?

    Thanks in advance for your answer.


    What you need is 2.5 SATA HDD and it may be Toshiba but it may also be of some other manufacturers. You don't need anything special. If possible consult your dealer and they can help you choose one that suits.

    Now, when you need a new HARD drive maybe you should think about upgrading with SSD. Disc SSD is much faster and use of SSD with your laptop will rapidly increase the performance of s for laptop.

    More info on SSD, you can read on http://storage.toshiba.eu/cms/en/index.html

    If you have any other questions you are welcome.

  • Satellite P100 - 10 p - what HARD drive I can use?

    What larger and faster HARD drive I can replace the 12.5 mm 2, 5 inch 200 GB 4200 RPM in my Satellite P100 - 10 p with?
    I can only find readers of 9.5 mm.

    Toshiba is usually inaccessible and as usual hasten to refer to their "dealers" who do not know their elbow for their...
    Why do we support these faceless idiots who are only willing to deal with the ministries or other bulk public-money-wasting buyers?

    I discovered something this laptop runs the height of 2.5 inches x 9.5 mm HDD 40 GB, 60 GB, 80 GB, 100 GB and 120 GB and 160 GB (and more) internal height of 2.5 in. x 12.7 mm drives.

    Looks like both hard drives 2.5 SATA (9.5 mm and 12.7 mm) can be used!

  • What HARD drive I can use in Satellite U300 (issue of SATA)

    I have 4 years Toshiba U300. Recently, the hard drive (200 GB 5400 RPM) broked down.
    I want to replace but I don't know that can use any SATA II HARD drive, or I have to use the HDD with SATA I?
    On some forums, I found two users that puted new HARD drive in the old laptop and they complained that the speed of OS boot was hopeless.

    So the question is what HARD drive should I buy for this laptop?
    (I prefer capacity 320 or 500 GB)


    SATA controller is downward compatible, you can use SATA I or SATA II HDD.
    It is important that you would use SATA 2.5 HDD. The size is not very important for 500 GB configuration issues should be ok too.

  • Satellite M70 - 394 - what HARD drive I can install?

    I have a Satellite M70-394 (PSM70E) that I would like to upgrade the hard drive.

    Can you tell me what hard drive I'm able to install, such as what type of interface?
    Do you also know if I can run windows 7?
    and can you tell me if I installed a larger hard drive and a new operating system will be my original toshiba product recovery disk work.
    then where in my drive hard is my factory set windows xp so I can remove and install the new operating system

    Post edited by: frederic


    I m not a Satellite M70 owner but as far as I know this laptop comes with SATA drives. But you can check yourself if you remove the HARD drive and then you can see which interface it is.
    If you have a SATA interface, you can buy each HARD drive you want. On interface SATA there is no capacity limit.

    Normally you can install Windows 7 but it s not released yet. Theoretically, it should work but I'll wait until it's official market.

    With a new HARD disk, you use the Toshiba recovery disc too. Why not? It s not dependent on the HARD drive you have so just boot make up and follow the instructions on the screen.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know. :)

  • Satellite 2770 - what HARD drive I can use?


    Can I use a 80 GB IDE HDD for Satellite 2770?

    Thank you.


    Wow. The Satellite 2770 is really an oldie
    He did not know to me that someone is still used as portable ;)

    Back to your question;
    I think that it should be possible to upgrade the 80 GB HARD disk.
    I put t known what HDD IDE controller was built in, but it should support the LBA 28 bits and, therefore, up to 128 GB HARD drive should be recognized.

    But this is only my personal opinion anyway it s worth a try

  • Satellite A210-ICO - what HARD drive I can use?

    I'm getting bad sectors on the hard drive of my laptop, so I guess I should pay for a new one – but who are able to A210-1CO?

    TA, M


    Satellite A210 uses SATA hard drives and you need a new HARD drive with SATA interface. You can buy each HARD drive you want, for example 160 or 320 GB. On interface SATA there is no capacity limit.

    In addition, most SATA HDDs have already SATA2 interface but its compatible downgrade to SATA1.
    I would have preferred a HARD disk at 5400 RPM. Of course, you can buy a HARD drive with 7200 RPM, but they produced more heat and noise. For most of the applications are pretty 5400 RPM.

    I have good experiences with Hitachi and Seagate hard drives.

    Good bye

  • Satellite L450D - what HARD drive I can use?

    Will try a hard drive to a desktop pc in the present, going to work or laptops have different hard drives?

    Hey Buddy,

    Desktop computers and laptops have different drives. Desktop hard drives are bigger (3.5) and laptops using only 2.5. On Wikipedia, there is a nice article on hard drives:

    Satellite L450D already supports SATA drives if you need a new 2.5 HDD with SATA interface.

  • Satellite M40-154 (PSM40E) - which HARD drive new can I use?

    Hello community,

    need a new HARD drive for my * Satellite M40 154 GR PSM 40th *. The old a HDD is: Toshiba MK8025GAS. The new need Toshiba also, 5400 RPM and 80-100GB capacity.
    I already try to find out which is right for my laptop, but I do not understand much about the HARD drives. There are more types, like GSX... But I need one that is compatible with my M40. Pleas help.

    Kind regards.

    AFAIK you can use each HARD top of page 120 GB disk because your laptop is a limitation of LBA 28 bits. This means that you can use the top of 128 GB of DISK space.

    The new HARD drive should be have an IDE interface and size 2.5. All that s and normally each Toshiba HDD should work with these specifications.

  • What HARD drive I can use Equium L20-198?

    Hi all!
    I'm looking to upgrade my drive,(L20-198) hard as it has only 40 GB for now.
    It has been said that any player (9.5 mm?) of 2.5 "internal SATA will work.

    Is this correct? I am hoping to move to a greater capacity and also a RPM faster.
    IE 80/100 GB-7200 RPM

    Just want to be sure that no readers are listed for this model on the Toshiba site!
    But then I saw other readers recommended on other sites.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    I guess the HARD SATA 40 GB drive supports a 5400 RPM.
    I think you could use a 40 GB, 60 GB, 80 GB and a 100 GB HARD drive.
    But I think the 5400 RPM is higher because many HARD disk faster could produce more heat and this could lead to overheating problems.

    Therefore use the 5400 RPM HARD drive, and you should also get a very good data transfer performance.
