Hard Drive replacement

I am trying to replace my hard drive with a Hatachi Travelstar5K160, 160gig/5400rpm/8MB for more storage but it will not format. Tried to update my BIOS with ZL53A27.WPH and can not find the program to open this. I can't even find any information about what file extention this is. Can anybody tell me if this notebook can handle this size of hard drive and if so, is a BIOS upgrade necessary to get this to work? Also, if anyone knows a contact e-mail or phone number that works for Acer support please post this so I can give them a piece of my mind. Worst support ever!!

According to the information I have, you can have a max of 120 gigs of hard drive on this laptop. However, for further information you can contact them here.... http://us.acer.com/acereuro/page11.do?sp=page117&UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=25&CountryISOCtxParam=US&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&ctx3=150&ctx4=United+States&crc=1312170003

I am replacing a Hitachi Travelstar 5K100 HTS541080G9SA00 80GB with a Western Digital 500GB SATA 3Gb/s Hard Drive 8MB 5400RPM 2.5IN Scorpio Blue. A tech told me to use a cloning software to switch the...

You would need to use a "usb" to hard drive cable. It looks like this: http://gizmodo.com/168149/brando-sataeide-to-usb-20-cable

Then, it is simply a matter of "cloning." The other alternative is to find a pc repair shop with a hard drive duplicator. It will copy much faster.
