This might seem like a really silly question so I will apologise in advance.
I am waiting for a new 320GB Seagate ide hard drive to turn up from ebuyer, I will be using the Seagate disc wizard software to clone my current 120GB WD hard drive that is almost full.
I have read the disc wizard instructions but it doesn't say if you need to format the disc? I know I will need to install it as a slave drive first before I can copy my old disc to it, but does disc wizard format it before it clones your drive or will I need to format it in xp first?
I have just installed a seagate 7200.10 320GB hard drive ST 3320620A the drive has been formated in winxp and now shows up as a hard drive in "my computer". The disc is set to slave (no jumper) and my primary hard drive is a Western Digital 120GB.
I have installed the disc wizard software on to my WD drive that currently contains win xp (sp3) operating system but when I run the disc wizard software it analyses disc C (my WD hdd) and then it analyses disc E (my new seagate drive) then it says that to use this software I need to have at lest one seagate or maxtor drive installed!
Can anyone help me make seagate disc wizard software recognise my new seagate drive?
