Are you sure there aren't two more zeros at the end of that model number?

After doing a LOT of digging I learned this notebook shipped with a HTS545025B9A300, which is a bog standard 500GB SATA drive. Replacing it with another SATA drive should be easy enough, even in Thailand.

There's no way that the notebook model you gave (PB TJ64) uses a SCSI hard drive. It's a standard consumer notebook with a fairly standard AMD chipset that most definitely uses SATA.

If you put that model in google it is scsi.
If you add an extra 2 o's its a sata hard drive.

Take a picture of the pins on the hard drive and upload it please. it will be easy to find you a new hard drive for you laptop but we need to exactly what we are looking for

Got links for that? I couldn't find anything useful for the apparently mistyped model number.

Yes pic of the actual HDD interface/connector layout will be great. I doubt this laptop is truely SCSI a drive for it could be worth more than a laptop, I don't think a company will do that. Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/PACKARD-BELL.../dp/B003LYH10Y also according to Crucial for HD recomendation for that particular model they recomend SSD which are SATA link http://www.crucial.com/eu/upgrade/co...-030/list.html. So I go back to my post and believe this is a SATA compatible laptop. PIC will clarify things up! GL again

It isn't a SCSI drive. No way no how. A laptop can't provide the 3A on the 12V rail to spin the thing up for starters, let alone keep it cool.

Oh, and parallel SCSI was obsolete long before that notebook was conceived. And Hitchi don't make a SCSI (or SAS) drive in that capacity.

In short - buy a SATA drive, stick it in, and be happy. The mention of SCSI in Device Manager will be a quirk of the drivers in use for the controller, and doesn't in any way mean the drive is actually connected using a SCSI interface.
