i currently have 2 hdd (c & d/e), 1 floppy drive(a) and a cd writer (f) - the 2 hdd's are on IDE 1, the cd writer is on IDE 2, the floppy on IDE3 - i wish to add another hdd - would it be ok to add the 3rd hdd to IDE 2 with the cd drive ? which one would be primary /slave etc? and how would i maintain the cd drive as (f)and have the new drive as (g)(if this is possible) - i am running windows xp pro - the hdd i wish to install is a used drive, should i fdisk this drive or would reformatting suffice - any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks Mac

Cdrw as master and the 3rd hdd as slave.

Remembering that the hdd will only run as fast as the cdrw its connected with.
