Question about HP Pavilion dv9720us Notebook
Posted by Anonymous on
The only practical way to add a second hard drive to the dv9720us is to use an external USB unit. There is no provision for a second internal hard drive (standard for laptops). The "expansion port" is simply another wire connection to the motherboard's data bus, and requires a proprietary cable from HP. Using a USB external drive is a standard approach and does not require any special drivers, etc.
There are a number of good external hard drives w/USB connection available from Costco, WalMart, KMart, and other retailers. HP prefers Western Digital (as do I, from years of repair experience...they last longer), but there are a number of decent brands. You can use any size you want. 1TB drives are not uncommon today. Prices generally range from a little under $100 to around $200 for large capacity drives.
Hope that's helpful.
