What you want is a "portable drive kit" for a 2 inch drive.
Almost any computer store or even wal-mart or best-buy should have these things. They come with all the fixins to put that drive into a little enclosure with a USB tail a waggin happily looking for a place to go (like your new laptop).
Best of all, most are driverless which means it just shows up as Drive E: in my computer on the new laptop.
Once you have it all hooked up, you may run into some permissions issues, but we can deal with that IF it becomes an issue. Almost everything on the drive should be accessible to you!

Any SATA drive will fit up to the size limitations of your motherboard. A 1Gb is about the norm now. WD, Samsung, Hitachi etc all about the same.
A 7200 speed will give you a slightly faster seek and write time or go for an SSD drive. All are compatible if SATA 2.5" format.

Hello, What cable or adaptor do I need to transfer all data from the hard disk of my Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 to my new laptop via USB port? Thanks.


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

It powers is good. No disk activity e.g read ,when boot up. no display activity.


boot problems

A200 series laptops are very good normally but don't boot up if there is a device in the USB slot or a CD/DVD in the drive.
If it still refuses to POST, remove the AC Adapter, remove the battery and remove the hard drive.
Power the unit up without the hard drive and it should complete POST and complain that there is no hard drive. If that doesn't work remove AC adapter, ensure battery is disconnected and remove hard drive and RAM. Try again. If it still doesn't work, you have a mother board fault and it needs a service centre. www.Toshiba.com will help you out.
If it does work at one of the options, when you have closed the laptop down, replace the RAM first and test, then the Hard Drive.

When working download updated BIOS from Toshiba.com
Hope this fixes your problem.

Toshiba satellite a200 not booging, when the power switch is switched on the fan spins for 5 sec and off by itself, and no further booting. The battery charging and power supply DC jack are ok.


The problem is not with the power supply or the power adapter. The problem is the hard drive of the computer itself. The hard drive could be corrupted and needs a reformat.

You have to reformat your hard drive as soon as possible so that you could still save it. The common cause of of corruption is virus.
