Re: Toshiba Satellite Pro A10
Well if you got the money to spend then you can probably stick at least a 250 gig (probably even more than that) hard drive in it. Reason i say 250 gig, cause i noticed this here - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136159 - if that's too pricey then almost half that price will get you 120 gigs here - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136130 - but whatever you get you should be good to go with as long as it's ATA and not SATA cause your laptop works with ATA only. And go with 5400 rpm's for sure (if you can find you a 7200 rpm then your really in business) I would go with a Western Digital or Seagate because they are more reliable. Hope this helps you and good luck.

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.
IDE is the flat 40 pin cable about 2" wide. Other than that it could be SATA, which is a small, plug. About 3/4" inch by 1.8". Take it apart and see what cable it has. Pretty much any hard drive will fit providing it has the same cable attachments.
the laptop should pick up a 20gb or 60gb ide hard drive with no problem
