Am I able to replace acer aspire t310 ata 40 gig with 200 gig sata hard drive


If this model Acer has a SATA controller then yes you can, but if it does not have a SATA controller then you can only install a ATA hard drive up to 80 Gb capacity.

Need 2nd hard drive for sony pcv-rz24g


You need a ATA-100 (EIDE) 3.5" hard drive. Then you need the jumper set to slave or cable select (if you have the two drives on one cable and the original drive as the master). See your manual for details on the procedure. You need to open the case, remove the cables from the original drive and lift the drive holder out of the case to insert the second drive. The manual is available here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=PCVRZ24G (see page 44 (57 as the pdf reads) and on) . Then slide the case into place and connect the power and data cables to both drives. Then go to the drive management to format the new drive and prepare it for use.

For XP, go to My Computer, then Manage. Then Select Storage and Disk Management. Then select the new disc for formating.

I hope this helps.

What is a ultra ata/100 hard drive is it the same as pata drive?


Ultra 100 is a type of cable designed to support 100mb/s vs 66mb/s. It has 80 pins vs. the 40 pins used on Ultra 66. Pata is short for Parallel ATA, which is the same interface as the Ultra 100 cable.

I have a acer aspire t180 desktop with a 250gb hitachi scsi (ide) hd. I would like to know which hard drives are compatible so that I can exchange it. thanks


It's a SATA harddrive, not SCSI.

Serial ATA

Acer Support > Aspire T180 > Specifications >

http://www.acersupport.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireT180/AspireT180sp2.shtml

Will use up to a 400GB SATA harddrive according to Acer.

IDE stands for Integrated Drive Electronics.
Another name is PATA.
Parallel ATA
Used to distinguish between IDE and SATA.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Drive_Electronics

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCSI

Exchange it?
Your harddrive has the Operating System on it.
A new harddrive will not have an O/S on it.
(Windows XP is an example of an O/S)

It would be much easier to install the harddrive you wish into an external enclosure, and plug the external enclosure's USB cable into your T180.

One example of a desktop size harddrive SATA external enclosure,
(3.5 inch SATA external enclosure.
3 and 1/2 inches across in width, for a desktop harddrive.
Laptop HD's are 2.5)

How do i change the hard drive in a acer aspire 5710


underneath the notebook you will see a little hard drive icon next to the bay you need to remove.

the hard drive normally pushes directly into the motherboard and is held in by means of a clamp.

Once the clamp is removed gently slide away the hard drive from the motherboard connecting pins and replace your drive.

Most likely it will be ok, unless the laptop uses SATA as the connector.
