Underneath the notbook should be a compartment to access the drive. It should be held be a couple of screws. Make sure the power is out before removing the drive. Look for one that has the same interface as you are replacing. It could drain the battery life of your notebook a little fast but if you already have a 92 gb and your doubling the size of it, it will be a slight drain to it.

What is the largest hard drive supported by toshiba p25 s507


The specs say that you have a 60Gb. hard drive. If the unit is less than 2 years old, you should be able to install a 200-300 GB. hard drive without any issues. The older laptops have a 137 GB. limit on hard drive partition space. You still can put a larger capacity drive, but you will have to partition the drive into c: 137GB, then the second partition can be any size.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response
Thanks, Joe

Toshiba P305-S8842 does not see the 2nd HDD. This notebook has 2 200 GB hard drives and it used to see them both. I haven't changed anything on the system.


The first thing to do is check that they are both registered in the BIOS. If they are there is a hardware problem and either C or D needs fixing. I suspect that the BIOS has left it out.

Hello. i have the toshiba satellite a200-28n and would like to replace the harddisks at 5400 to 7200 rpm.the types of disk are two mk2046gsx 200 gb each one.what harddisk can i choose for...


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.

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).
