Question about Battery Technology for Toshiba Satellite M30X, M35X
If the original battery can be detected (even if it no longer holds a meaningful charge), and If the "new" battery is a 3rd party manufacturered one - and most of them are - it (the new one) may very well have been dead to begin with. Now please realize that these notebook batteries are not just a bunch of cells connected or wired together - it's a lot more than that, as there's also a circuit board between the battery contacts and the cells, and this circuit board almost always contain some form of propriety stuff that 3rd party battery manufacturers have to "reverse engineer" to be as close to the original specs as possible, and this reverse engineering stuff ain't always perfected or tested fully.
If I were you, I'd return it, get a replacement, and if the replacement is still not detected, I'd go with some other brand /manufacturer. This kind of stuff happens quite often.
