yours is a IDE HDD just have a look online for one or go into a computer shop
(P.S if you upgrade you will have to coppy all your files from your old HDD to the new one)

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!


  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista

          SATA hard disc compatibility


          Actually, there are two good reasons not to swap that drive into the new laptop,

          First, you never want to boot from or install software to a drive you're trying to recover as everything you do to/with the drive runs the risk of causing further damage.

          Second even if it weren't for the damage, you simply aren't likely to have the right drivers unless both laptops are the exact same model.

          My suggestion is just get the new laptop you want, then attach the damaged drive with the enclosure to the new laptop then run your recovery software. If that doesn't work, you will likely need the help of a Pro.

          Try Armor-IT Data Recovery, they are listed in the FixYa database and service clients from all over North and South America.


          Hope this helps FixYa,

          I need to replace my hard disk notebook with a bigger capacity hdd


          Toshiba is rather secretive with their documentation. It is hard to find. Google TOSHIBA SATELLITE A10 SERVICE MANUAL and check the available offerings.

          You now have a 5400 RPM, ATA 100 drive. You should not have any drive size restrictions. Shops are advertising many large drives as compatible.

          I suggest that you purchase only a 7200 RPM drive. The faster speed will perk your machine right up.

          I have not worked on Toshiba machines but suggest you have all restore disks and passwords at hand.

          Want To Replacing My Toshiba A10-S330 Hard Disk


          Hi,

          Normally you can upgrade to a new hard disk to the next bigger size, so from 40 Gb, then perhaps a 60 or even an 80 would work. Even if the BIOS/motherboard would not recognized the new size, Windows XP would and be able to access it.

          However, I don't think that the size should really be the main concern. I think that your selection should be based primarily on the power consumption. Most laptops have a preset power distributed to its devices. If you are going to use a bigger size HD with a bigger power consumption, Windows (or even your BIOS) might recognize it but the power distribution might be over worked.

          My suggestion would then be go to the next size but keep in mind the power rating/consumption of the old when selecting.

          I am enclosing an image of my laptop's HD. Pls note the rating DC+5V 0.7A for this 60Gb HD. The 0.7A is its current consumption/rating.

          851b184.jpg

          Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.

          Good luck and kind regards.
