HDD for 701CS?

#1 Post by martin_boro » Thu Jul 11, 2019 11:08 am


So I just got a 701CS from what is essentially a recycler. The thing (somehow) still works, the display is fine and most importantly, the keyboard mechanism works perfectly.
It however came with all of the recycler "features". This means, that I have no HDD, no battery, no dock, no external floppy and no parallel cable.
I have since bought a dock (Thanks, TheForgottenKing), but no HDD is more complicated, since it requires this PCMCIA-looking adapter, which I don't have.

Sooo, I guess the question is, does anyone know a way to add a HDD to it?

UPDATE: So, I have some more serious issues now. I tried running the built in test and it always hangs up right at the end of the test, 1024KB away from the total. Like 24192KB/25216KB. Does the same, when I take out the Expansion module. So I might have an issue with the onboard ram :(
The Collection: T22, T23(SXGA+), A21p, X24, A31p, X32, T42p, Z61p, X301
The WIP: 701CS, T30, W700
