New SATA Drive

  Dorkins 10:31 16 Dec 2006

I would like to boost my Hard-Drive by adding another 250GB hard-drive(the existing drive is SATA)but i cannot find a connection to join it up inside the case. Can anyone tell me if i can purchase a cable that will allow me to join up the two hard drives please. Thanks

Each sata drive has its own connection, you cannot couple sata drives together as you can ide drives.

Look for another sata port on the motherboard.

as jimv7 states, each SATA HDD has its own connection unlike ide/pata hdd that you connected 2 to each cable. look on you motherboard to see where your other sata drive is connected and the should be 1 or more other connectors (rectangle in shape, with an L shaped fitting) available to connect your new drive to.
