Adding A 2nd Hard Drive To A HP Dv9000 Laptop




What do you think about this video?

bchwlkr: What about grounding before opening your computer? Is that not important anymore? Guy never mentioned it.

newmodeUS: LOL, yes i am. Are you based in US or pinas? It depends on the drive manufacturer. 500GB (2.5" 9.5mm-high) is the largest you can place in right now. With some 500GB drives, all you have to do is jumper the drive from 3.0Gb/s to 1.5Gb/s to make it work. On some, you have to use the new 500GB in the primary HDD bay as the boot drive.

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

luismotavation: thanks man!

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.

Meteorix 69: how many GB this hard drive has?

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

Pow3rbull: then, power your laptop off (after it finished) then, put in your xp disk, and follow install instructions. then, once in xp, put in your drivers disk and install your drivers. any problems? pm me on my youtube-account and ill help you further.

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.

racingisfun: correct me if im wrong, are u noypi? anyways im gunna get one of these soon, do u know if theres any cap/limit for the dv9000 as in hd capacity?

racingisfun: cool, i actually live in canada, how much would this exact caddy(dv9000) cost including shipping to Calgary, AB? and do you have a recommended manufacturer 500gb hd for durability and reliability?

GUITARWANNEBEE EVH: Sorry for the typo .. I meant 350GB

emospaghal: hi, i was jus wondering, if that website can send products to canada. and for how much?

Andrés Orozco Corral: hi, i've got this new hp dv9000 but i hate vista, and i cant run xp, so can you help me installing windows xp in the dv9000? thanks

newmodeUS: CTO mean "Configure to Order"

newmodeUS: You can use and drive that is 2.5", SATA interface, with a height of 9.5mm

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.

aidyanimal: hi so underneith where the sd card slot is (left hand side of the comp) is empty spefically for additional memory

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?

zenith828: How do i boot from the second harddrive bay?

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?

newmodeUS: Unless you order the laptop from HP with a 2nd hard drive, the 2nd hard drive bay is empty.

Pow3rbull: That one is probably empty. Did you ever hear of a partition? Anyways, I'll explain: We have a 320gb hard drive, and we can partition that hard drive into 2 times 160. So the computer thinks there are 2 hard drives, but actually it is the same. Or you can have an 80gb hard drive (or what ever you have) and of that, about 10gb for the recovery. That way the computer thinks there is an hard drive for recovery and an hard drive for user space. 70gb is then left for you. Hopefully helped you..

WittgensteinSergeantâ„¢: HELL NO!!!!!!!! just format ur 1st hdd

newmodeUS: Yes, the correct hard drive to use is a SATA 2.5"

Pow3rbull: Get your vista disk, or burn one. Then, format your whole hard drive (this removes ALL data) and format it to NTFS or FAT32. When you choose FAT32 it is almost impossible to go back to NTFS. I would chose NTFS. Then, get a copy of Windows XP. Be sure to have a driver cd from hp for your laptop too. put in the vista disk, and go too the boot setup. go too boot setup and place the dvd drive on 1st position. now restart. now wait till the whole vista thing is loaded, and format your drives.

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

andkrs8: Very helpful thanks!

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??

GUITARWANNEBEE EVH: I got a HP dv9715nr and i have a WD 6350gb HD that works perfectly as my primary >> I installed another of the same HD and I don't see it when I go to MY COMPUTER , I see it when i go to devise manager I see it and it says its working properly .. I also don't see it when i go to DISKPART ... any help would be great ...TY

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.

aidyanimal: is it the one labeled 1 or 2 thank you for any help

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?

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

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?

newmodeUS: sorry, don't know the answer to that one.

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.

DeAthZReApEr760: @newmodeUS How do I know what that is?

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.

newmodeUS: You will have to use it in the primary HDD bay as the boot drive.

newmodeUS: If it is a new drive, you will have to "format and partition" the drive.

Timothy Liang: does anyone know wat does "CTO" stands for in - HP Pavilion dv9000 CTO Notebook PC ? pleasee

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 ??

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!

kasimdoubleG: im sorry but u really sound gay with that 2.5 in micropone

chingonsilver: I have a hp dv9743cl, but i have a question: hp recovery manager also errase the secondary hard disc?

wiseman091190: Can a HP G70 Laptop have 2 HDD??

DeerektorJ: But what will increase my processor ghz?
