You can install satellite M100-164 - what hard drive?


I have a Satellite M100-164... This is a version of Middle East the M100, almost identical to the European version, as far as I can tell.
(short only model no psma0e)

I want to install a new hard drive. The specification says he uses a 5400 RPM Serial - ATA hard disk.

I can use any hard disk of this type, or are there other things to monitor (for example depth of drive, the pin configuration?)

for example can I use this drive:
"Toshiba MK2555GSX 250 GB 2.5 SATA HARD drive internal

... or I should he play safe and use one that explicitly says its for the M100, for example this one on Ebay:
"250 GB hard drive Toshiba Satellite L35-L45 M100, M105"
[ mputing_HardDrives_RL]

Thank you


On the SATA drives, there is no capacity limit and you have on each HARD disk the same pinout. This means that you can use each SATA HDD you want and also SATA2 hard drives because they downgrade compaitible then standard SATA1.

However, you can buy the cheaper version on Amazon. This HARD drive should work as well in Notepad.

I hope I could help a bit.

Good bye

  • 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.

    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 Pro M70 - what HARD drive can you recommend?

    I have Satellite Pro M70 and I have a 60GB HDD that I see what it s SATA 8 MB of buffer memory. The processor it s 1.73 GHz. I see that there is the Samsung typical 160 GB and the Western Digital Scorpio Blue 160 GB at the same price, which is better?

    And for only $ 11 more there's a Scorpio blue Western digital 320 with even 8 MB buffer than other 2. But I don t think so 320, that's a lot for Satellite Pro M70, and I have an external drive 2.5 "250 GB, data with this is not problem.

    What the best solution for this laptop? I don t want to burn now the phone LOL.

    Thank you


    If your laptop is already equipped with SATA interface, you can use each HDD with SATA1 or SATA2 port on the new SATA interface there is no limit on the old standard IDE

    It s your choice what HARD drive you buy because I put t know your needs, but in my opinion it makes no difference which manufacturing you buy the HARD drive. All hard drives are similar and there is no significant difference (performance).
    I made good experiences with Western Digital and Hitachi hard drives.

    By the way: you can buy a HARD drive with 7200 rpm or 5400.rpm. Latter is faster but requires more power. In my opinion, this is useful if you often work with large files.

  • Satellite 5200-802 - what HARD drive can I use?


    I have a 5200-802 Satellite with a 80 GB HDD (IDE) and I would build in more.

    I would like to know what is the largest room, which will be accepted by this laptop. Is it 100 GB or 120 GB, 160 GB or 250 GB or 400GO or?
    Who manufactures?

    Everyone knows?

    Thanks in advance

    What do you think is the biggest HARD drive you can use?
    I think that this question can be easily answered: it s a HARD drive to 120 GB because the laptop has a limitation of LBA 28 bits in the IDE. If you want to know more about this please consult this website:

    If you need a 120 GB 2.5 HARD drive and you can buy each production. I have good experiences with Seagate and Hitachi.

  • 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.

  • Satellite A200-1N2 what HARD drive are supported?


    I have an A200-1N2, with the original 120GB hard drive.
    I would like to upgraded to a larger capacity HARD internal disk.
    Can you please me, whose internal hard disk capacities and types (only IDE?) are supported?

    Thank you very much!!

    > Can you please tell me, what capacity internal hard drive and types (only IDE?) are supported?
    First of all, for all IDE HDD is NOT supported, because the laptop supports the SATA HDD controller. Therefore, use of SATA 2.5 hard disks.

    Given that the SATA controller is not limited to any size, you should be able to use any HARD drive 2.5 SATA.

  • You can install anywhere other than the C drive CS5?

    I have CS5 on my computer and it works perfectly.

    The problem I have is that I'm running out of space on my drive c. (currently 864 MB free 64.2 GB).

    After a quick glance the stuff I have on this record, it seems to make sense to move Photoshop to another drive and instantly find more than 10 GB of space back.  I already have a dedicated reader of Photoshop on my computer (H :) which contains all my brushes to fonts, Actions etc.) It would be great if I could install it here instead.

    However, are acting to computers, I know that nothing is ever as simple as it of seems.

    Could someone let me know what kind of trouble I could hope to do this, or even if it is possible to do.

    Just out of curiosity, I started the CS5 Installer earlier today while still having Photoshop installed just to see if it was something he would let me do. (I have no intend to uninstall Photoshop of my C drive, until I know if it's feasible).


    As you can see from the picture above, it shows that I have installed Photoshop and it shows the location (highlighted for you in yellow).

    I tried to change the drive letter to H:, but I can't change the text in this box.  I was wondering if this site relates only to the already existing copy of Photoshop. And so I need to uninstall the existing copy until I can change that. Or this site will always be C:\Program Files\Adobe regardless.

    In short, is it possible to install CS5 on one drive other than C: without having any problems?

    Also is it possible to install 2 copies of CS5 on 2 different disks? So I can test again before you finally get rid of the old.

    Any help or advice are welcome.

    Of course, you need to uninstall the current copy before installing Photoshop in a different place.

    You can install only one copy of the same version both on the same PC.

    You won't be able to install it in another location just to see if everything goes well before uninstalling the C: drive.

    And Yes, choose another drive and the location in this area with the little installation folder icon will allow you to install Photoshop on another disk.  Allows you to keep the majority of a gigabyte of software out of the C: drive.

    Do not forget that there are a number of things (for example, the common Adobe software) which will always and only install on C: drive, however, and there is nothing you can do to change these locations.


  • Satellite Pro 2100 - what HARD drive do I need?

    Hi all,

    I just got a Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100, but the hard disk has been removed for the protection of the data. Now, I don't know what type of HARD drive, I have to get PATA/SATA?
    Can a little help if you please?


    You can buy this store on the computer HARD drive because it has an IDE interface. You can t use a HARD drive with the new SATA interface.

    So I agree with Akuma. Already, I think that everything is written here.

  • Satellite L30 - 115 - what HARD drive is compatible?

    I want to ask is a compatible HDD for my laptop (Satellite L30-115). The interface is ATA-7/ATA133 and it looks like this:

    I don't know if it is compatible with SATA interfaces, but it looks like SATA. Also in wikipedia ATA-7 is shown as PATA, who works with SATA I or something like that. If it works with SATA I, can I use SATA II or even SATA III and it is necessary to use jumpers to make work as SATA I
    Can you please send links with compatible models of HARD drive that works for my laptop?

    There are second hand hard drives that are ATA - 7 but I preffer new drive HARD if it is possible. SATA II or SATA III will be better for me because they are cheaper.

    Thank you.


    The interface on the photo you have posted is SATA interface, so you need a HARD drive with SATA interface. It makes no difference if you buy a model with SATA 1 or SATA 2 interface because the connector is the same and all SATA 2 downgrade compatible SATA 1 readers.

    There is also no limit capacity on SATA models, you can buy a HDD 500 GB, 640 GB or more disk space. You can take a model with a new SATA 2 interface, it works on SATA 1 interface too. :)

  • Installed new hard drive on laptop with Windows 7 can install Windows XP on external hard drive and plug it into USB?

    Original title: Win7 Pro + HD Ext different OS
    I just installed a new hard drive in my laptop with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.
    Would it not be possible to install WIn XP or Win 98 + older software (Win 98 or XP) on an external hard drive, then plug it into USB, laptop, in order to run old programs of 16-32 bit?

    It would be best to run Windows 98 or XP in a Virtual Machine, if you need to run older programs.

    You can use a free software such as Oracle VirtualBox or VMware Player:

  • Satellite A60 - 102 - what HARD drive is possible

    What capacity of hard drive used in this laptop


    Satellite A60 is a little older series and I think that the laptop supports the IDE HDD controller
    Perhaps the HARD disk controller support for only 28 bit LBA, which means that only 128 GB would be recognized by the BIOS.

    I think a 120 GB HDD should work but I'm not sure if the biggest hard drives would be supported due to mentioned m 28-bit LBA

  • What HARD drive can I use Satellite A60-125

    I would like to know what type of hard drive I can install on my satellite A60 (Pentium 4 3.00 Ghz) to upgrade the original Hitachi 40 GB. Can I install a 160/200 GB 2.5 "of any type (brand, RPM, capacity,...) or there are some limitations of the bios? Thank you.

    Hello Ric

    There is unfortunately no public on this matter document because Toshiba does not support upgrade. Toshiba gives some info on built in hardware and also on the RAM max that can be used. Upgrade takes care of disk HARD authorized partner in your country, and they have exact information on this subject.

    Yes I think there is limitation in the BIOS, but I'm sure that you can use up to 100 GB HARD drive, maybe more, but as I said it is not easy to find info on any official page of Toshiba.

    If you are lucky someone will post here the news of A60 laptop upgrade. Until then try to contact find some information online. Google all over the place.
