I just bought a Toshiba NB200 netbook and I also ordered some SSD drives from Crucial, one of which is going to go into that new device. I expected there to be an easily accessible hdd bay, but there seems to be only one for the RAM.

Before I take my screwdriver and investigate, I'd like to find a tutorial by someone who already did it. I found a YouTube video about it, but it appears to be blocked for copyright reasons, I'm not exactly sure what that's supposed to mean in this context.

I couldn't find anything else helpful. Does someone have a hint?


Found this link that shows the drive revealed Looks like it may assist

  • I could be wrong, but I think the Satellite and the NB are different models. . . – AdminAlive Dec 7 '09 at 21:12
  • Well, there's no battery compartment on my one, the battery is just slid in from the back, so the instructions don't apply. – Hanno Fietz Dec 7 '09 at 21:25
  • Sorry Thought i was Satellite 200. Is the Netebook NB200 – Dave M Dec 7 '09 at 21:30
  • Hey, we found the same article. Yeah, it does look promising. – Hanno Fietz Dec 7 '09 at 22:13
  • Thanks for the additional research and for going back to the post and updating it! – Hanno Fietz Dec 7 '09 at 22:21

Here is a Service Manual for NB100, compare it perhaps? I don't see any for the NB200.

  • It seems the harddrive on the nb200 is accessed from below, not from the top as in the nb100. – Hanno Fietz Dec 7 '09 at 21:45

Meanwhile, I found this article about resetting the BIOS password on the machine and it includes instructions for disassembly with photographs that look promising. The machine seems to be exactly the same I have.

Somewhat hard to find (loads of spammy garbage sites kept littering my search results) and not yet verified, but looking good. A non-standard screwdriver (Torx they are called in Germany) is required.
