Well upgrading the HDD of a Topfield. Taking care to leave it plugged in so you don't lose the signal, you need to buy a minimum 250GB SATA drive and a SATA to IDE converter.
Remove the screws that hold the top of the case of the Toppy. In order to do this you'll need a no. 7.5 Torx driver, and the screws undo clockwise.
Unfasten the HDD without removing the drive caddy (this is very fiddly but it is important that you do not remove the caddy as doing so would lead to a short circuit between the HDD and Motherboard).
Next, attach your new drive (use a drive of the same capacity because he SATA drive stores data vertically as well as horizontally so you will get double the capacity of a standard PATA drive) using the IDE to SATA convertor cable.
Next, comes the power (or Molex) cable. SATA drives require that the Molex connector be attached "upside down". It may be necessary to file off the square "bottom" corners of the nylon Molex connector in order to be able to firmly drive the connector home.
Select the HDD jumper as "Slave" - don't forget this is a SATA drive - and refasten the case screws.
That's all there is to it.
