    when u try to boot up it goes straight to a screen that said this HDD is password protected, and prompt u to enter a password.

    please be more specific, where does this password occur? is it an encryption password or found somewhere else at a file level?

Hard drive passwords are embedded in the firmware of the drive itself. You need to try to find out what the password was.

There is an article about this at this site.

As an alternative, you can try making a new Time Machine backup from the files of the old HDD. Install Mavericks from scratch on the SSD and then transfer the documents needed back from the Time Machine.

I would recommend installing fresh OS X when upgrading from HDD to SSD anyway.

Here is how to make a bootable USB stick for installing Mavericks:

What is the largest HDD compatible on a Sony Vaio VGN FS630/w laptop What max HDD size can I upgrade now? Currently my laptop has 80GB HDD.


This is a 5 year old system which is ancient in todays world. Upgrading the disk to 160gb would help but that is about the top end disk size. I'd consider a newer system. It would cost in the $75-100 range. Your disk is ATA which I don't think got larger than 160.
Don't forget you need to CLONE the existing disk to the new one which can be a pain if you don't have the correct tools.

the HDD best to use is an SSD.
the HDD was a standard, 2.5? PATA drive for laptops

why would you want such a small drive, they dont make them now. (40 smallest?) new.

this PC is not supported by HP now, its too old a Pentium III no less.
why would 20gb be and upgrade.?? 10 now? omg , it is 10GB...then... and worse its PATA (IDE) harddrive.



its 17 years old now, most are in the recycle bin,
it came with windows 95 or 98, (hopeless that OS)
the laptop has zero value now, so is putting a new
$50 to 100 dollar drive,is wise,?
what if there are more problems, (endless when that old)

DVRs, not sure at the moment about the one you have, are limited with the brands and size hard drives it is able to accommodate. I'll advise you to check the manual you have with the DVR to see the brands and sizes that it can accommodate.

Having problems upgrading my laptop hard drive !!!


From what I gather basically you want to copy everything off of your 40GB and put it on the new 320GB and the install correct? Why don't you do a backup (Start>All programs>System Tools>Backup to the external 500GB drive. Install the new 320GB drive and then load the operating system from your operating system disc, then restore the data from the 500GB you backed up, or am I missing something.I know it is not as convenient as cloning but sounds like you may need to do it the old fashion way..there is no good reason that the cloning software would quit reading your disc unless it's some kind of "only get one chance and throw away software".
