How do i find out which hard drive is compatible with my acer aspire 5733

Compatibility is something that is not something to worry about these days. It's either the same type of HDD or not. While some Manufacturers of the laptop itself may have a special HDD with and extra feature... like shock detection (Toshiba) it would still not be necessary to get the same one unless you found the feature useful. As long as it is either SATA or PATA. But more than likely it SATA as PATA is very old. Speed is an option as a matter of fact. 5400 RPMs is optional while you could increase speed to 7200 RPMS at a higher cost.

You can even super upgrade to Solid-state drives that are still the same as your SATA, but use spinless technology for optimal speeds! The power is yours!

Hi Tom!

You DO need the SATA drivers diskette! Download it from here.
The easiest way will be using a USB Diskette Drive... Follow the instruction in the included README file (section "5.3 Pre-Installation Using the F6 Method") to complete your Windows XP installation!

If you can't find any USB Diskette Drive - it's a little more complicated... Follow the instructions here!
