SOURCE: Hi, my toshiba satellite pro

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!

Yes, all IDE 2.5-inch disk-drives use the same pin-out. SATA-interface disk-drives have quite-different interfaces than IDE drives, but all SATA devices share a common interface.

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)..
