Toshiba HD speed 4200RPM to 5400 Tags: Hard Drives HD Toshiba Components Last response: September 26, 2009 1:46 AM in Components Share Anonymous September 26, 2009 1:07:03 AM I have an older Toshiba A25S279 60GB hard drive, 4200RPM. Does anyone feel there would be a problem to upgrade to 160GB HD @5400RPM? Other question, to replace the HD physically and then transfer information to new Hd from 60GB hard drive, I need help with Thank You, DanB More about : toshiba speed 4200rpm 5400 photonboy September 26, 2009 1:46:07 AM I'm guessing your 60GB drive is PATA/IDE> I don't think you can buy PATA anymore. The new standard is SATA. As far as a problem, provided you have the correct interface (SATA or PATA) most 2.5" drivers are interchangeable. As for transferring, I assume you mean transferring the Operating System. You would need to use the CLONE utility. This may be difficult if you only have one drive hookup. Your options are to CLONE, or Reinstall your OS, or do an IMAGE backup and RESTORE to the new drive. I just don't have the details to help you out specifically. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
