I have just bought a cheap hard drive to be used as a slave but I may have bought the wrong thing! I have bought a Deagate SCA SCSI drive and I don't know how to fit it. I have put slaves drives in before but these seems different. My motherboard is an ASUS A7A266 if it helps. How do I go about it, or do I resign myself to the fact that it is incompatible?
Secondly if I were to upgarde my moptherboard what would you recommend? I have 512Mb RAM and Audigy Platinum card and a radeon 9600 Pro graphics card. My processor is 1.4 GHz. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thanks
As stlucia says, you need a scsi card to connect your new Seagate drive to your system but since you can buy a 60Gb or 80Gb IDE drive for the same money as a scsi card it isn't really practical to do this. Best advice is to swap the drive if you can.
