    sorry theskarekrow, your email address seems incorrect.
    My 1201 EA has a clicky HD. I want to replace it for
    as little as poss (it is going to Africa for a school) and need the product codes to look for. I have seen
    a Toshiba MK6034GAX but that is a 60GB drive. In your opinion, would
    any IDE ATA-6 2.5" 9.5mm drive fit?

    Many thanks,

There are several hard disk manufacturers which makes hard drives that are suitable for laptop. Just take the old hard drive with you to the computer shop and select one that suits the size/capacity you require. The connector on the hard drive will determine the type of drive you need ie. PATA or SATA.

Can anyone help me? I need the code for my radio - Renault Megane. Model europa 22DC461/62L, product code FD***********17, bar code ***********I785. Thanks in advance

Renault dealer should have these codes. As well as your owner manual. And manufacturers wonder why people dump the stock radio for after market products.

I need a replacement motor on a KitchenAid Professional HD Stand Mixer (Model KG25H7XSL).

The loud pop was probably the soft start circuit board on the motor. You can buy this board at repair sites or Ebay. And yes, they make 220V versions of this mixer.

AKAI STB 8309 DUR HD with no remote.Anyone knows the codes of that remote.

Akai is really made by Samsung----You might want to check with them or try to price and look for an ORIGINAL replacement remote--Universals are a pain as you have discovered and even if they program will be missing a number of key features the original remote had.

They are by no means "Universal" for programming or use.

I want replace the stock cables on a 03" hd xl

The best way to do this is to actually mount the handlebars and use stiff wire to "fabricate" the cables to find the exact length you need. With that, you can either order the closest one available or have Barnett custom make the cables for you. While you're waiting on the cables, you can be working on lenghtening your wiring for the switches.

Good Luck

For the HD Audio drive to work properly, you also have to install the Microsoft Device driver for HD Audio. You can download both at the ECS download page here:
