Today I bought a new Hard drive. Its obviously an OEM version because it was just in a brown cardboard Box. No cables or software.

I have a spare SATA cable and can fit it tnto the PC Do I need any special software or can I use the usual way to format this.

Also I noticed that there aren't any Jumpers to set on the Back, Is this the case with SATA? This would be a Slave drive as I already have 200gbs.

Sata do not Have Jumpers. If your Computer already as Sata from New it should work

Thanks Woodchip.

This is the first pc I've had with SATA. Always had IDE in the past.

Connect it up then use Disk management to format it.
