You won't be able to transfer hard drive data by plugging one computer into another via USB. In order to transfer data, you will need to remove the hard drive from the Toshiba Satellite Pro, use an external hard drive enclosure, and attach that to your new computer with any USB cable.
The hard drive can be taken out by removing screws on the bottom of your laptop. The drive can be found in the bottom left of this picture: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-02.jpg
Here is an example of the exclosure you would need: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817816013

Hello,

For recovery disks set, they are available only for purchase. You can buy the recovery disks for your laptop on http://recovery-disks.com/toshiba/toshiba-satellite-pro-a200-ez2204x.html.

What I can suggest if you don't want to pay for these disks is to format and install Windows and then you can install free software like Driver detective to know what drivers you will need. Once you have the list of drivers, you can download them from websites like driverguide.com.

Note that formatting your laptop will result in losing everything you have on it.

Hope this helps.

Installed vista on toshiba laptop. downloaded recovery disk from identical laptop. can't recover original laptop data


There's a couple options.
You can purchase acronis and do a full Drive backup to another hard drive, then restore to the new one.
If you just need data, no programs, you can purchase a 2.5" USB to SATA enclosure for $9, take out the other computer's drive, pop it in the adaptor, plug it into the new computer and simply copy the data.

The maximum size hard disk you can install in your Toshiba depends upon the BIOS. The BIOS can support a hard disk up to a certain capacity. Check the specification of your model Toshiba to see the maximum hard drive it can support.
An alternative -
You can use an external USB hard drive and connect it to your Toshiba and not be restricted by the BIOS. You can use USB hard drive 500 Mb to more than 1 Tb.
The other advantage of using an external USB hard drive is you do not need to install Windows, the device drivers and your programs on the new hard drive.

The Coolmax adapter is an USB hard drive adapter that can connect various types hard drives to your computer. This is used for testing and and transferring data to and from hard drives connected to the computer via the computer's USB port.

This Coolmax USB hard disk adapter can connect a 2.5-, 3.5- and 5.25-inch IDE or SATA hard disk to a PC. The black adapter box connects the hard disk, while the secondary power plug/adapter powers the drive. In the case of smaller notebook or SATA disks, the power cable is plugged directly into the adapter (as opposed to straight into the IDE hard disk).
The red USB cable, meanwhile, can be used to power hard disks directly from the host PC's bus via another USB port.

Connect the hard drive to the adapter as detailed above, power up your computer and plug the Coolmax USB cable into the conputer's USB port. The computer will detect and see this as an external drive, most likely as a E drive (the next drive letter that is available). Click on this drive and open to open the folder/s where your data is stored then select the folder/s and/or data and copy them, then open the hard drive on the computer and paste the folder/s and/or files onto the new hard drive.

Motherboard died on my Toshiba Satellite A105 S4334


That is a tricky one. Guessing that you already have the new laptop, there is a usb adaptor that accepts SATA, IDE 3.5" and IDE 2.5" drives. You plug your drive into this adaptor, and plug the usb into your new computer. Now you can access all of the files on the old hard drive.
