Welcome to the forum!

 

The largest drive currently available that will fit your R51 is WD 250GB, being the biggest PATA/IDE drive on the market.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

George

Hmmm... my computer is a bit old... 4 years. How can I be sure that it can run that HDD? The HDD I got it with was just a 40GB.

Re: R51 Max HDD capacity

People have installed these drives in T42s which are of the same age. My R50p has a 120GB in it. One of my T43s has 160GB, and one of my A31p units, much older than your machine, has 160GB as well.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

George
