Windows 7: adding a new laptop hdd to a toshiba computer

adding a new laptop hdd to a toshiba computer

my hp laptop broke so i took its 4gb ram and put it in another toshiba laptop

now this toshiba laptop has an extra hdd slot but when i opened it up and looked around, i could not find a SATA connection. (what im trying to achieve is add the hp laptop hdd to the toshiba one)

i read on another forum that if there isn't a connector on the toshiba hdd slot, then it's probably not meant for another hdd to be there..

is this true?
if not, can i find this port anywhere??

The toshiba is a Satellite P200 PSPB0C 380C

You apparently have one of the ones that don't actually support the second drive. I would suggest getting a usb enclosure for it, you can get it for that type of drive for like 10 bucks.
