I have tried everything that i know and could not make the X41T recognize a 7k100 HD connected direct to it (replacing the original 1.8" one).

I guess nobody did it before... I didnt find just one case where it have been done.

So my 7k100 is resting on the tablet 8(

Have someone tried to plug an 2.5" HD in a X41T?

I tried with a Travelstar 7k100 and booted from an usb pendrive.

Every HD software that i tried didnt find anything connected to the IDE port...8(

I dont have an ultra base to check if it works there but the system started as usual with the 7200 HD placed in the primary IDE bay (as i said it was not detected) by the USB bootable pendrive. Even the Hitachi's utils didnt find the HD. I dont think its a power restriction but a BIOS or software on...

Maybe... But the cable between the ZIF and IDE connectors is flexible and thin. Im not sure its impossible to place the ZIF HD by side (like the X41 original HD) and connect the 44pins IDE. Off course its only can be checked by an user with a X41 + ZIF 1.8HD + ZIF-IDE adapter and an adventure spirit...

I replaced the original 40Gb 1.8HDD with this 7k100 and booted using a Hirens bootable pendrive. All the hirens softwares didnt find anything ...

I've installed the seagate, very quiet. I dont really notice so much difference in speed, which surprises me. It is a little faster, esp opening up large programs like pagemaker or photoshop, and photos pop up faster, but i expected more snap and speed than I got. But its just the first hour. But n...

I just received a X41 Tablet with a original 4200rpm 40gb HD from hitachi. As i have a Hitachi 7k100 7200rpm 2.5" (HTS721060G9AT00) in hands i decided to try it in the X41 (yes, i know it doesnt fit all in the bay) just to evaluate the performance. Is there a reason to the X41 dont recognize the new...

As this CF adapter is not too expensive i decided to order one. I have an 1GB CF card so i will try to load something very light as DOS and see if it boots. I guess if i could get a DOS boot in a smal 1GB card there will be no reason to it does not boot on an 16GB card with a XP or TabletOS. Am i wr...

Hi, I just ordered a X41 tablet and was looking for a possible solution for this HD problem too (low speed). Have you seen this CF to 2.5" IDE adapter? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320113780344 It seems to be very short and cheap. The problem i guess is that HD FW check that so...
