Subject: Upgrading to a 60 GB hard drive
From: Scott Bronson (bronson_at_rinspin.com)
Date: 2003-01-29


I want to upgrade my Recorder 20 to 60 GB, so I can then put
the 20 GB hard drive in my laptop. I've included some research
below.

Has anybody gotten the Toshiba to work? I'm trying right now,
but I just can't get it to go. (more in my next message)

Has anybody gotten ANY 60 GB drives to work? Can the Archos
see all 60 GB? Thanks,

    - Scott

All of these look like they should work... I've ignored the IBM
Travelstar because it's a power-hungry, loud, expensive 5400 RPM
drive.
