You can use whatever 2 1/2" drive will fit and connect electrically. Hopefully you have either a hard drive image or the media needed to restore your OS.
My Toshiba Satellite A60 HDD has crashed and I am trying to find a replacement. It came with a Toshiba MK3025GAS
HDD2196B ZE01 S 30GB 2.5" drive. I was wondering if I can use any old 2.5" sata drive or does it need to be a Toshiba ? Is there somewhere that tells me what is compatible with the Toshiba Satellite A60 ?
