Thinkpad R30 and Toshiba 80 GB hdd

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I've got the Toshiba 80 GB hard drive and I'm trying to install it in my
Thinkpad R30. The trouble is that the BIOS does not recognise that drive. I
tried another, the same model drive and there's the same situation. When I
connect the drives to laptop via IDE-USB adapter, both of them work
perfectly so they don't seem to be broken. Is it capacity-based problem ?
Too big capacity for my R30 ?
I'd be grateful if someone could help me. After recent dead of my 40 GB hd
I'm using backup 12GB one and it's very unconfortable, so that's why I'm
trying to get the 80 GB working....

Best regards,
