If you fit an additional HDD, does Windows just recognise it and allocate a drive letter to it?

More info needed, What OS are you using, how is the drive to be configured Master/Slave USB.

Ahh, not so simple then! OK, WinMe. The original is 40G. I want to add another HDD and run XP on it, and be able to switch between the two.

Sorry, not USB but internal HDD.
