    hello all and happy new year .

    First of all , sorry for my bad english .

    I bought a Satellite A100-386 few years ago and i'm really satisfied, but my hard disk drive is down .
    So i wanted to know if i could put a 2,5'' S-ATA II Hard drive in, like this.

    http://www.materiel.net/disque-dur/hitachi-travelstar-5k500-b-s-ata-ii-250-go-8-mo-48900.html

    because when i see satellite features, they mention a hard disk with only S-ATA .
    Is there any compatibility ?

    Thank you for answer :)

    Bye bye

    Hi

    Yes, I think this should be possible.
    The A100 supports SATA HDDs controller and theoretically you could use any 2.5 SATA HDD.

    I can just confirm what Paolo wrote.
    You can use SATA HDD on this old Satellite notebook.

    It should be recognized properly. 250 GB capacity is also OK.

    Good choice.
