Gooday Toshiba Experts, My 30MB hard drive HDD2181, has apparently a lot of bad sectors. I am able to format it with a recovery CD. Recovery process is aborted repeatedly. The laptop is Satellite...


With so many bad sectors preventing a format, I would recommend the purchase of a new hard drive. You will most likely need to buy an IDE 2.5" hard drive for your laptop. However, you should double check the manual to see if it uses IDE or SATA. You can get whatever size hard drive you want for it.
I wouldn't recommend any manufacturer over the others, they're all quite similar, almost some people have their own personal preferences. Just look for the correct drive type, space you want, at the price you want. Don't focus too much on the manufacture.
The new drive can be formatted with a recovery CD, however it would be easier to format with the Windows CD when you reinstall the operating system.

Replacing a part inside the hard drive


you cant. You shouldn't even touch that part of it. Its broke so you will just have to send it off to get it rebuilt.

Hard drive crashed


Since the laptop is no longer even listed on the Toshiba site, you probably need a 2.5" IDE hard drive. You should be able to take it in to any reputable computer/electronics shop and they can tell you positively if it is an IDE device or not (I'd put money that it is). You should be able to use anything up to about 200GB. Anything bigger than that is dicey based on the age of the laptop (the built-in controller may not support drives larger than 200GB). And your recovery disk should not have a problem with using the larger drive although you may need to partition it yourself before running the restore disk since some of them hard-coded the partition information (which would give you a 30GB partition and the rest unused space which you could then use for a second partition with a separate drive letter than the rest of the drive)..
