You will need to configure the hdd's jumper to the slave position. You will also require anide cable for a slave drive, master goes on the end connection and slave in the middle. Connect with a spare power lead, you should have one already in your pc and then boot up. Move the files over to your hdd by drag and drop. That's all there is to it.
