The 261380-001 HD for my EvoN600c is dying. Can I upgrade to a larger capacity drive as long as I stay within the 2.5"/9.5mm size? Can I go to 100 gb?


As far as I am aware you can use a 640Gb drive if you can get one but that is a little too large!
120Gb should be fine.

This machine can't use a hard drive larger than what it came with.
This is a very old machine and won't be able to run anything more than Windows 2000.
About the only thing that is current and will run worth a darned is Linux. With Linux you'll be able to use the larger hard drives as well.

You could buy a disk-drive-to-USB adapter, and connect the "bare" disk-drive to a USB port on your computer, and then copy all the files onto your computer.

See: http://cgi1.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190391564434
for under $5.00 for such an adapter.

Or, you could spend about $40 to buy a brand-new enclosure & AC-adapter & cable that is "empty", and then you could "transplant" your 40GB disk-drive into that enclosure, without losing any data on the disk-drive. Then, copy the files, and then remove the disk-drive, and purchase a new, larger, disk-drive, and install that into the new enclosure.

Given that your disk-drive is "only" 40GB, it's probably getting old, and is "out-of-warranty", and thus should be "retired" before it completely fails.

So, the best solution would be to buy a brand-new, much larger, external storage device.

Your 40GB drive is an IDE ("Integrated Drive Electronics") drive.
The largest IDE drive ever manufactured is 500GB.
However, some motherboards do not support drives larger than 320GB.

Some disk-drives (Seagate/Maxtor) come with a CD-ROM of "tools" that enable you to copy "everything" from your "old" drive to your "new" drive.

You did not indicate that the 40 Gb hard drive had Windows installed on it and whether it was the original hard disk for this computer.
There is a possibility the 40Gb hard drive is faulty.
Try installing the 40Gb hard drive as a slave drive with the 80Gb drive as the master drive (don't forget to set the jumper on the 40Gb hard drive as Slave. Check the BIOS to see if it detects the 40Gb hard drive, and when the computer boots up, if it can see the 40Gb hard drive and opens the various folders and files, then the hard drive is OK.

Syntax SV266A Motherboard Hard Drive update


Hi,
i,d suggest an 80-120 gig hard drive should be sufficent.
if you require larger drive storage. you can add an external hard-drive via USB upto 500 gig usually without restriction.
You can also purchase An PCI Card, with sata connectors. should you wish to take that option. all the above is dependant on how modern your computer system/systems bios Is.

HDD replacement for Toshiba Satellite M35X-S114


should be no problem adding a larger hard drive....If I were you I'd compare some prices of Hard drives and choose the one thats suits best...you're not restricted to toshiba hard drives either....advantages of installing a larger hard drive really relate to what you use the laptop for....if you store lots of music or have lots of big programs then a larger hard drive makes sense....also you'll find it easier to get a 60gig hard drive than a 40gig as that size of drive is quite rare nowadays
