Subject: Hard Drive upgrade
From: Bradley M Alexander (storm_at_tux.org)
Date: 2003-08-02


Hey all,

I have an old Toshiba Tecra 8000 laptop with a completely dead battery. I
got to wondering, since I haven't been able to get a larger drive yet, if
it would be possible to swap the drive from my JB6000 with the 10GB drive
in this laptop (if I can't tote it around, I may as well let it sit with a
smaller drive :).

The drive that was in the laptop is marked as a Toshiba HDD2932. It is also
marked

MK1101GAV
B ZE01

and it says DC+5V 0.7A.

Physically, the drive is nearly the same footprint as the Archos. (Perhaps
a few millimeters narrower than the JB.) I did not disassemble the Archos
at this stage, I wanted to verify with you all first. Considering the
batteries, it almost looks like its too wide to fit in the case. my
understanding was that the Archos used a laptop hard drive. Are there
different sized drives? More importantly, will this particular drive work
in the Archos?

Thanks,

--
