Hard Drive replacement - Fujitsu MHV2100BH

by willysk5 / February 27, 2008 12:25 AM PST

Hello all,

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop (model# M45-S359) with a Fujitsu MHV2100BH hard drive that's dying....and also discontinued.

Is the Fujitsu MHV2100AH a direct replacement? If so, could I upgrade to the MHV2120AH?

Here's the path to the AH spec page: http://193.128.183.41/home/v3__product.asp?pid=450&inf=fsp&wg=15

Here's the path to the BH spec page:
http://193.128.183.41/home/v3__product.asp?pid=476&inf=fsp&wg=15

They look comparable to me, but I don't know if Toshiba used SATA or not...or what that even means...

On the tech knowledge scale of 1-10, I'm a 3 or 4.

Thanks!

I'm guessing here you think it must be a Fujitsu drive?

Different make than what you asked.

But looks good to me. Be sure your new drive has a jumper to lock down the SATA to 1.5Gb or "SATA 1"
