The 261380-001 HD for my EvoN600c is dying. Can I upgrade to a larger capacity drive as long as I stay within the 2.5"/9.5mm size? Can I go to 100 gb?

You usually can get a larger drive to work. If the old hard drive is still working, get a drive clone unit, clone the drive, and then you have to move the partition to access the extra space...

You can add any size as long as you know if your current drive is a sata or ide and you stay with laptop drives. This particular model is an ide.You will have to reformat the new drive once it is installed. If you have an external hard drive you can create a system image on the external drive and when you reload your operating system disc you can restore your laptop with the system image.Then your laptop should still contain all files and folders that are currently on it.

As far as I am aware you can use a 640Gb drive if you can get one but that is a little too large!
120Gb should be fine.

Can I put a larger SD card into my LGMS323 than the largest size SD card specified?


In some cases, maybe. Some cameras that have had firmware updates may be able to handle larger capacity cards, but not necessarily. Also, do not do a firmware upgrade expecting more capacity unless the release notes for the upgrade specify it. Otherwise, in most cases, installing a card of larger capacity than specified will result in the card not being recognized by the device.

How can i upgrade my hdd without buying new?


If by "upgrade" you mean more storage you can't
you will need to by a larger capacity drive . The H.D. is
a plug and play module attached to the side of
your console . and is easily removable.


I hope that answered your question.
If not, please feel free to rephrase it and I'll
respond accordingly.

Can I replace my gateway T-6836 laptop 250 gb hardrive


Yes, it can be upgraded for a larger drive. The important specs to know are the physical size and the interface. The size that this computer needs is the 2.5 inch and the interface is the SATA. These are the typical size and interface used today so finding a drive that fits should not be a problem.

Hope this helps.

The P-5000 includes an internal 80GB hard drive which is specifically designed to work with this product. There are no hard drive upgrades available for this product. If you try to install another hard drive, it may damage or adversely affect the operation of the product. This type of damage or operational failure is not covered by the product's warranty.

CANT CONNECT A 1TB SEAGATE 7200RPM HDD. oRIGINAL BIOS ON MOTHERBOARD


The BIOS may not be able to support a hard drive of such a large capacity. Check the motherboard manufacture's WEB site to see what size hard disk the BIOS can support. There maybe a BIOS upgrade that will allow the motherboard to support larger hard disk capacity.

Internal Hard Disk Upgrade


Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).

Ctx ezbook 700e larger HD


Why move it at all. XP needs SP3 to read hi capacity drives. I use USB external drives without any problems to increase capacity without the hassles of moving files. There are software packages that will transfer data from one hard drive to another if you must.
