New hard drive

  Josquius 18:15 23 Jul 2004

I'm wanting to install a new hard drive in addition to the one I currently have.
How woudl I go about doing this?
Is it just a case of putting it in connecting the wires and then switching the computer on?
Will I have to go to dos to format it or can windows xp do this?

Oh good, thats what I thought though the site mentioned using a disk, I guess its out dated.

The problem all along was my old hard disk - it had been set as a slave all along despite being the master for some reason.
So thanks for trying to help me with non-existing problems. The new disk is on formatting now.
