Almost all SATA hard drive will work with the R530, changing it is also easy by removing the back plate and bracket. Best to use a 7'200rpm drive for speed.
As to SSD, these are solid state drives, using memory chips instead of plates to hold data, as memory read/write so much faster, it will make your laptop feel like speed lightning, as to which SSD the R530 only support SATA-II interface, so getting a SATA-III wont give you that much more speed.

sorry , squat, just means they "don't know nothing "

Seagate is a good drive ,and it will not hurt to use a 5400rpm drive its just a bit slower ,its use in laptops because of heat ,it will run cooler than the 7200rpm drive..

tell the computer shop to look for this model Seagate . ST9320423AS

Seagate ST9320423AS Momentus 7200.4 Mobile Hard Drive - 320GB, 2.5", 7200 RPM, 16MB, SATA

caperjack, can i ask something?is my old hard drive samsung can be save?...before my hard drive become bad...when i used this i make some download like picture and updating my antivirus but it suddenly logs the screen or freezing,so i immediately force to restart by long press the power,and when it boot ups it prompt to repair your hard drive etc...so i repair it and it says that it cannot be repair...so restart again and i went to system restore but it could not restore..i restart again and tapping the F8 but it still the same. until it goes to black screen the microsoft loading bar is not visible anymore after i restart.so i tried to format it but there it says an error when i'm doing the partition and install the window 7."the installation may fail soon etc.."...so i just ignored it and installed so the installation is successful but when i installed the antivirus and some programs,when it restart the microsoft laoding bar is not visible it hangs up and black screen,so i tried again the start up repair but it would not repair when i clicked the details it says bad harddisk...so is this really gone and cannot be saved?

Thank you in advance.

hi, its my experience that once a hard drive does what your is doing its not fixable ,you should run seatools to test the drive ,download and burn to cdrom the seatools for DOS in this like ,boot the computer to the CD and run the full test to see if the drive is bad .if its bad seatools will tell you for sure .check on how to use it on this site also

you could downlkoad seatools for windows instead of the DOS one ,and install it on your desktop and run it and it will locate the 2 harddrive in the computer , tell it to scan the slaved laptop drive

Hi caperjack,


I already tried the seatol the dos version because the windows version could not be install in my desktop...but when i tried the long test it says that the S.M.A.R.T has been tripped!!!...so i abort the test...what is meant by smart has been tripped i have no idea on this..and is my hard drive cannot be repair now?...


Thank you in advance.

First, you must determine whether you need an internal or external hard drive. If you're looking for the easiest way to add data storage capacity to your computer, then you should go with an external hard drive....

that ok ,no need to abort the test .you need to run the test to tell you if it ok ,

definition of S.M.A.RT

hi caperjack,

I found out that my hard drive should be replace a new one, because the seatool will not continue to test and it says failed etc...anyway i am still looking for the hard drive that you have said.by the way about the 7200rpm does this will matter to my processor my processor is dual core 2.1 Ghz intel...

Thank you in advance.

Thank you in advance.

it should be no problem to use either a 5400 or 7200 rpm drive ,like i said before its usually just a power consumption and heat issue for the laptop .your laptop will work just fine with a 5400 rpm drive that what most use anyway ,so i wouldn't really be concerned with getting a 7200rpm drive
