You need a Serial ATA hard drive, and you may have a limit to how big of a hard drive you can go to.
Go to your local computer supply store and tell them what you need,,and they will sell you a compatible unit.
As to what type of drives to buy,,,,there are many types of drives,,and many opinions,,get the highest spin rate is all i would suggest.

Hi, own a Sony Vaio VGN P530H with hardisk Toshiba MK6028GAL damaged. as forced to replace unit, wonder could install a higher capacity? Brand & model if available please!!! thanks to all of you!!!


The VAIO VGN-T350 is a notebook computer designed and distributed by Sony.
The hard drive on your Sony VAIO VGN-T350, which is the unit that stores data, consists of many clusters of data that can be rewritten with new data.
If you are looking for a memory capacity upgrade, or if your old hard drive is having errors, it's time for an upgrade.
Upgrading the hard drive on your Sony VAIO will require the use of a screwdriver and will take you about 30 minutes to complete.

Turn off your Sony VAIO VGN-T350 and remove the power cord and any other peripheral components.
Turn over your Sony VAIO VGN-T350 and locate the hard drive chamber on the bottom of your laptop. It will be clearly labeled.

Use the screwdriver to remove the screw holding the lid in place.
Gently lift the hard drive and its cage away from your laptop and disconnect the data cord.
Remove the four screws located at the corners, and then remove your old hard drive from its cage.
Place your new internal laptop hard drive into the cage and replace the screws.
Connect the data cord to your new hard drive and place your new hard drive into its chamber.
Close the lid and replace the screw to complete the operation.

My HD has died and I need to replace the HD on my Sony VGN-NR21M/S Laptop. I s this something I ca do myself? Is it just a case of purchasing a new HD and fitting it or is it more complex? Many thanks -...


This laptop comes with a 200 GB SATA interface drive. You can replace it with any capacity you want. Most people who have extensive music and picture collections, usually go with a 500 GB drive. These go for approx. 100 bucks on Ebay. Just make sure it is SATA and is 2.5 inch form for the laptop. When replacing a drive, there may be driver or "Initializing" software with it. The drive has to "initialized" in order to be used. It will probably need the software run if it is replacing the main drive. Below is the service manual to illustrate replacing procedures for your laptop.
