  1. Hello npans5;

    Yes you can.
  2. Hi,
    The new Toshiba drive has 4 metal prongs on one side where as the old Fujitsu drive had 4 spots on a board. I have nothing to plug into the 4 metal tabs.
  3. Your Fujitsu MHX2250BT edge connectors look like this - right? And the Toshiba has the matching gold colored edge connectors?
    It's a standard SATA power and data connector and it's the only connector used.

    Your HDD doesn't use the 4 spots/4 tabs in your laptop.
    They're only used at the factory.

    -> Check the laptop connector - nothing there for those tabs.
  6. Thanks for your help!!!! I will install it tonight after work. Will let you know how it goes.
