HP MINI 1010NR- Part Number FT315UA -8GB Solid State Drive Running Windows XP Home Edition
The Hard Drive is listed in Device Manager as a ide\disksandisk PSSD 8GB SSD 4.47
I have Windows XP fully updated and Microsoft Works 9.0 Fully updated on this computer and it reports that I am Low on Disk Space.
I love this computer but I must have more disk space to make it more functional to use.
My question is:
Can I replace the solid state drive with a platter type (normal) 250 gig hard drive. If so what size 1.8" or 2.5" and what capacity? Also, what type connector on the hard drive would I have to have to connect up to the computer? IDE- PATA -SATA?
I really hope that I can do this as it would make this computer very usefull to me.

The solid state drive is SATA (the 8GB SSD from the service guide is).
See this maintenance guide: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01683469.pdf
I can't say if a SATA hard drive will be working but a 16GB SATA SSD (probably 2.5", but you can find it out yourself) should work. The 16GB compatible SSD is SATA so I would buy one..
