What hard drives work on this ZG5?

I want to improve my ZG5 storage capacity. It comes with only 8 GB in a flash drive and I want to change it to a regular magnetic hard drive.

¿What references fits well into this little machine?

Thanks

It uses a 2.5" hard drive. It can take either a SSD or hard drive. They will both work. In order to change it, you need to gut the laptop. The drive is under the motherboard.

It does NOT use 2.5 sata, it uses zif/pata 40pin drive.

There are at least two different models of your netbook. In one you must disassemble as nick states--the other is easier. I will provide links to videos for both to assist you is your project.

The second one is in Spanish but you can follow the video if you don't speak Spanish. Good luck with your upgrade.

Some of them don't seem to have a %*%# Sata connection inside! What can one do then? I dont want an external solution.

My point as well. There is no SATA connection inside.

If anyone has the solution, please kindly point me to the right direction.

They should all have it. It depends on which one you have. if you got a hard drive model then you will have all you need. If yours is the SSD one, it uses an mSATA SSD. It's normally about 32GB. In this case, you will need the caddy.

It does not have sata connection. What do you suggest?
