newmodeUS: Yes, you can still clone. Just make sure that you test the new cloned drive extensively after cloning. Sorry, we don't have any cloning videos at the present. If your laptop is a dv9000 series, the hard drive in there should be SATA.
Spimaldi A: So when i put in the hard drive say my old hard drine has a bad sector can i clone the new hard drive with clonezilla or acronis( my laptop is a Hp dv 9000ea amd turion model) or do i have to fix the sector before cloning? thanks,Do have any videos with how to clone hard drives and what cloning software do you recommend? thanks Oh so even though this laptop has ide for hdd the hdd caddy does conversion to sata 2 right? thanks
newmodeUS: Yes, the correct hard drive to use is a SATA 2.5"
Spimaldi A: Can i use sata hard drive in this model laptop hp dv 9000ea thanks
Spimaldi A: what size sata hard drive do you recommend to use with this model HP Pavilion dv9000ea and does new mode sell them? thanks
Spimaldi A: Hi new mode thanks for your quick response and help i really do appreciate it do you have any videos on how to do the cloning of vista on the new hard drive could you please do a video on how to clone vista to the new hard drive thanks, Oh so the caddy is a conversion kit from ide to sata is this the case I am new to this please reply thanks
Spimaldi A: Hi thanks i just contacted crucial about ssd for HP Pavilion dv9000ea they just sent me this message Thank you for contacting Crucial. I am sorry but your system does not have a SATA connection and cannot be upgraded to a SSD drive.are they misinformed? thanks
newmodeUS: What you would do first is install the new HDD in the 2nd drive bay with a 2nd HDD kit. Then run the cloning software. Once done, swap the original drive out with the new one. Thanks!
Spimaldi A: Hi nice vid how do you copy or clone vista when you change hard drive
Men Munroe: This computer is the worst.. don't waste your time or money

Lucifers Kitty: I have a HP Pavilion dv9000, how would i even know if a SSD will fit in it?
Probably a stupid question with a simple answer but I'm new to the whole building thing and stuff. Thanks!
newmodeUS: If it is a new drive, you will have to "format and partition" the drive.
Craig S: Sorry for the typo .. I meant 350GB

Nick Nicoloudis: help me it my mums laptop thanks

no bios. no key board. screen works??
Wyatt Wallen: freak. Why the need for a harddrive caddy HP? Now I have to go out an buy a stupid caddy JUST so I can use my 2nd HD. Shame on you HP.
newmodeUS: No idea why access is that slow. The controller should be able to support much faster than that.
ShiversandCo: Thanks I've followed your instructions. The drive I have installed is a Hitachi 250GB Travelstar. Unfortunately the write speed is in the region of kb/s not mb/s. How do I speed it up -- any ideas?
Nome Byface: question ?? In order to upgrade the main HD ( C drive ) is their any formating that needs to be done or does the main OS stay on the computer and all i need to do is switch HD.. plug and play ??
zenith828: How do i boot from the second harddrive bay?
precisiondivisionfla: Precision Division in Florida repairs laptop motherboards. Most repairs cost about $125.
There's a great Q & A at PrecisionDivision . com
andkrs8: Very helpful thanks!
thehandoftheking: Is that a special size SATA HDD, like in inches? I have an HDD that came from an old laptop. It says ATA/IDE, I guess that will not work, huh?
Meteorix 69: how many GB this hard drive has?
kasimdoubleG: im sorry but u really sound gay with that 2.5 in micropone
geodescent: I'm curious, if you move your single primary HD to the 2nd bay and install a new, bigger HD in the primary bay, would you need to ghost/image the data of your original drive into the new HD or can a dv9000 boot from the second HD bay?
ChaosStep: I'm having to replace my primary drive. I bought a new one and system recovery dvds specific to my model of laptop; DV9820ea. is it just a case of replacing hard drives and booting up with recovery discs to have it up and running again?
bchwlkr: What about grounding before opening your computer? Is that not important anymore? Guy never mentioned it.
newmodeUS: Thanks Efi4ltis!
For most of the dv9000 series, you will have to slow a 3.0Gb/s SATA drive down to 1.5Gb/s.
Spyros Maniatopoulos: Can I also add SATA2 HDDs or are they different ?
Is there a limit to the HHD's speed - can I use both 5400 and 7200 RPM ?
awesome video, thnx! :D
newmodeUS: you will see it in the "specifications" of the drive when shopping for one.
Right now, all 2.5" SATA drives are 9.5mm. It's only the new 1TB and 750GB drives that are taller than 9.5mm and won't fit in your laptop
DeAthZReApEr760: How do I know what that is?
newmodeUS: sorry, don't know the answer to that one.
newmodeUS: You can use and drive that is 2.5", SATA interface, with a height of 9.5mm
TobyTheTissue: @newmodeUS. My laptop only says Pavilion tx2000, but HP's driver support page has 2000ed, 2000ez, 2000z & 2000CTO. Should I select CTO do you think?
DeAthZReApEr760: How do I know which kind of hard drive will my laptop need? I have a HP Pavilion Dv6000 series. I have 80 GB total. I want to get a higher one which is a 320 GB. Please answer anyone.
Mr. Nice: imma buy me one and add it to my hp pavilion dv 9910us and also did you know nvidia gefroce go 7150m 64 mb will run crysis at good frames at lowest settings
newmodeUS: Is you 2nd HD new? if yes, you will have to format and partition the new hard drive in order for the OS to see it.
newmodeUS: CTO mean "Configure to Order"
Timothy Liang: does anyone know wat does "CTO" stands for in - HP Pavilion dv9000 CTO Notebook PC ? pleasee
Edward Mendez: I have added a 2nd HD to the same model Laptop but the OS will not recognize it. I have dual 160GB SATA drives and will only see the primary and not the secondary. Setup screen is no help. Any ideas??
stonedfly2: where did you purchase your extra hard dive...mine got the click of death and im having trouble finding the new hard drives that dosent have the pins...thanks -tj
DeerektorJ: But what will increase my processor ghz?
newmodeUS: Hello DeerektorJ,
Replacing the hard drive won't increase the Processor ghz.
If you use a faster hard drive, you could increase access time.
DeerektorJ: If i buy a different harddrive to replace, then will it raise the ghz processor like for gaming??? please reply im very interested in the topic.
aeg12p: HELL NO!!!!!!!!
