Hard Drive replacement

I am trying to replace my hard drive with a Hatachi Travelstar5K160, 160gig/5400rpm/8MB for more storage but it will not format. Tried to update my BIOS with ZL53A27.WPH and can not find the program to open this. I can't even find any information about what file extention this is. Can anybody tell me if this notebook can handle this size of hard drive and if so, is a BIOS upgrade necessary to get this to work? Also, if anyone knows a contact e-mail or phone number that works for Acer support please post this so I can give them a piece of my mind. Worst support ever!!

You would need to use a "usb" to hard drive cable. It looks like this:

Then, it is simply a matter of "cloning." The other alternative is to find a pc repair shop with a hard drive duplicator. It will copy much faster.

Please rate if you find this helpful.
