Both HDs must be either sata or ide and each one must not have a password lock.

good luck

Installed new WD HDD (160Gb) into Toshiba Satellite A10-S167. Entered BIOS edit, but can't get laptop to recognize the new HDD (which replaced a smaller, failed HDD)

Shouldn't have any problems on the A10 series working with a 160GB drive, so long as it's an ATA/IDE type with a 44-pin connector. If it's not recognizing the drive, could it be that the pins were not precisely lined-up with the IDE connector? I'd remove the drive, make sure the pins are still all straight, reinsert it into the HDD compartment and see if it makes a difference.

The Satellite Pro L300 didn't have any problems running multiple programs or multi-tasking jobs with its Core 2 Duo 2.1GHz processor and 160GB hard drive. I could check email, open documents and surf the Web without any lag. The benchmarks are average and overall the L300 did good on its PCMark05 score compared to other notebooks in the same category. I am sure the fact it is running Windows XP instead of Vista helps out this business savvy notebook as well.
wPrime is a program that forces the processor to do recursive mathematical calculations, the advantage of this program is that it is multi-threaded and can use both processor cores at once, thereby giving more accurate benchmarking measurements than Super Pi.

2 SATA Drives will not burn DVD-R but will burn DVD+R

Well, for one thing, your system is faster then mine. AMD Athlon X2 4000+ 2.10 GHz, 2GB, BIOSTAR A770 A2+ 160GB SATA. Anyway, what sata port did you install these DVD-Burners to. I know it shouldn't matter, but humor me for a minute. I have mine on the last two normally. Seems to work fine. Try it and see.

Let me know
