Re: Sony Pcv-w 600G hard drive replacement.
Replacing a hard drive is very simple. A hard drive will have two connectors a one for power(small plug usually white with 4 holes ), and an IDE cable that looks like a ribbon. You just have to remove the cables from the old hard drive and plug them into the new one. An IDE cable looks like this(clcik here)
You see the four holes next to the IDE cable? Thats where the power connector is plugged in. Let me know if you need anything else.

Try this: STEP 11 Lift up and remove notebook display panel. STEP 12 Remove hard drive cover, memory cover and modem cover from the bottom of the notebook. Each cover is secured by one screw. STEP 13 Here’s how you can remove the hard drive. Remove four screws securing the hard drive caddy to the base assembly. Slide the hard drive down to disconnect it from the motherboard. Lift up and remove the hard drive. STEP 14 Removing memory modules (if needed). Carefully spread latches on both sides of the memory slot. The memory module will pop up at 30 degree angle. Pull the memory module from the slot by the edges. Removing modem card (if needed). Remove two screws securing the modem card. Lift up the modem card to disconnect it from the motherboard and unplug cable from the side.
You have to remove the base part of the laptop by removing all the screws including the little ones under the cd when the dvdrw is removed. and the ones under battery and there is one under the ram cover then the base comes off easily. just then remove the caddy locking screws one at the front and one and back bingo bongo.
Hi there. I've worked for Sony VAIO and can assure you that the only solution is to get a Sony Branded Spare parts. The parts of Sony VAIO are very specific. As of now I see that the only solution for you is to either contact Sony Service Center or go for an external DVD Drive.
