That doesn't answer me question, SATA or IDE, the enternal drive, can then be swapped for say a ps3 one.

Largest IDE drive ever made in this size was 250GB, so that should answer the question.

Didn't realise you wanted to take it apart. Probably IDE, many of the toshibas are.

That is a 3.5" drive, not a small one.

OK, let me spell it out. The largest 2.5" IDE hard drive is 250GB and made by WD if I am not mistaken. If any of you think you have found a larger one then let me know.

I am not holding my breath.

Is this really the best deal around for a 320 GB HD?

Need one for my sis for Chrimbo....

For USB powered? Seems it.

he's right...
all larger drives are SATA drives

personally i'd pay the £5 odd extra for the wd passport
e.g.

quality is excellent. paid £90 for mine about 9mths ago

500GB?

westerndigital.com/en/…525

Whats the least amount of power this will run on (want to try to connect to an HTC Advantage PPC using the usb host cable) ?

Personally i think the Freecom XXS 320gb is a better deal, so i bought one. Smallest portable external drive going apparently.

ebuyer.com/pro…374

could someone please help. I am getting on a bit, and dont quite understand these things.
would i just connect this to my computer and press something and all the information would go across and be saved to the hard drive? Or would i have to do one thing at a time? and if its the first option and the whole lot goes across, can i do it again when ive added more things on my computer?
would be most grateful if anyone can help.

If you go to my computer and right click on your hard drive, now go the properties at the botttom - this will tell you how many bytes your hard drive has.

Connecting this to your laptop hard drive will provide 298GB (8 bytes to a mb, a Megabyte is 1024 bytes, which is 2^10 bytes. Computing has always used base-16 and binary to represent numbers)

If you connect this you will have the equivalent of an enormous floppy disk. You can copy as and when you want, limited only by the speed of usb2.0 (which is fast) or the space (320GB which is ample)

These files can be copied back and forth. I would ensure you used the safely remove option in windows (the little green icon in the task bar - bottom right) if I were you, to ensure you don't lose or corrupt any data.

Finally drives over 40GB (I think) require a usb cable with two connectors for the extra power last I remember.

Hope this is of help to you and sorry it took so long to post

eiam here-- thankyou so very much, I am not good at these things but that was a brilliantly detailed description on what to do.

I will purchase a hard drive and use it to copy things on.

thankyou again for taking the time to answer

Merry Xmas and Godbless

Nice find, voted hot.

Anyone looking for a PS3 upgrade should buy the Western Digital 320gb scorpio for £60.41 at ebuyer, same capacity but 7200rpm so will operate a fraction quicker.
ebuyer.com/pro…083

Plus chuck your old Hard drive in one of these for £6 ebuyer.com/pro…268

Tingly you would have to choose the files you wanted to transfer individually, or in groups. Simple operation though just drag and drop. Hope this helps

Not at al tingly, there are much more knowledgeable people than me, as with everyone. But the little knowledgeable I do possess, I like to share. All the best with your new hard drive and future computing. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year.

Just an after thought, Hard drives functiion via storing data to a revolving magnetic disc, therefore would also become erased/corrupt by coming into contact with a similar force.

ie. do NOT (edited, almost a terrible error) lay you hard drive down by anything containging magnets - speakers, etc.

what do people think of this … what do people think of this one?http://www.dabs.com/productview.aspx?Quicklinx=56C8



I have that one. I extracted the Samsung inside for my laptop - cheaper than the bare drive.

SATA not IDE

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/149972400GB IDE 2.5" Drive.



SATA not IDE - eBuyer has wrongly labelled it as IDE. See if you can find a 400GB 2.5" IDE drive on Western Digital's website. As I stated, the largest is 250GB and then the industry abandoned IDE for SATA as all laptops had made the switch by then.

Not sure why this is expired...

This Toshiba Portable hard disk is slightly cheaper at PCWorld (£59.20) with free standard delivery as well. Can also [email protected] for added convenience.
