I have the above laptop that has a 32gb SSD but need more storage so does anyone know which hard drives SSD or spinning are compatible?
This might be a bit difficult since it's SSD. What model number is this?
The laptop is a VGN-TX12VN and on the bottom it has a label saying model number PCG-4L2M
I dont mind replacing with a spinning hard drive if I can.

Can you please check your model number? I suspect that it is possibly VGN-TZ11VN or VGN-TZ21VN. If so the drive should be a 1.8" ZIF PATA/IDE SSD.
Have a look at the following links but confirm compatibility with the supplier before purchase.
Actually I have looked again and on the bottom left of the screen above the hinge the model does say VGN-TZ12VN
I did buy an SSD 128gb but it didn't last very long. That was a MLC and they are not as reliable. I'd like to fit a conventional spinning disk. Any suggestions?
Hi stbouff92,You’re obviously correct on the model – I must have mistyped on my original search.Not having a Vaio model with a 1.8” drive, nor carried this modification, I can’t give you any concrete guidance.However as long as the replacement drive is PATA with a ZIF connector and is the correct thickness (these drives come in both 5mm and 8mm thick) I can’t see why there would be any problem.You will find a selection at the following link, but they don’t come cheap...http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=1.8%22+ZIF+PATA%2FIDE+hard+drive&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a#q=1.8%22+ZIF+PATA+hard+drive&hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&prmd=imvns&source=univ&tbm=shop&tbo=u&sa=X&ei=TprlT_zCLsG-0QXZ5omCCQ&ved=0CGMQrQQ&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=e66274ef2f737b56&biw=1376&bih=886Rich
