I am trying to replace the hard disk on a sony pcg-tr5mp - that's the
european model but I would assume the drive is the same as the tr5ap (the US
model) and it's predecessors the tr1, tr2, tr3 (all with appropriate
suffixes for different markets)

the disk is only about 8 mm thick - it looks much thinner than other laptop
drives I have seen. there is no label or anything on the drive itself

anyone know where I could get a replacement?

FYI after a lot more searching and a certain amount of trial and error I
have now visually identified this as the toshiba 1.8" disk -the same one
used in an ipod. I would assume all the TR series use the same drive.

The back is completely covered with an unremovable black sticker obscuring
the manufacturer and part number - I guess sony wouldn't want anyone taking
the back off their vaio to see that it had a toshiba hard disk.
