Hi. I want to replace my external HD (60Gb)with an internal. Need larger capacity for my music ( took Flecc's suggestion from an old thread) and bought the Bush turntable to convert LPs to MP3s). 120Gb would do the job nicely...would it require me to do any more than the usual? ( disk management..etc)Be grateful for advice.
What's the limit, may I ask? My mobo ASUSTeK Computer INC. REV 1.xx is old, ( BIOS: Award Software, Inc. ASUS A7V ACPI BIOS Revision 1006) with an Athlon 1Ghz cpu.I just picked up that these would be the limitation....or is XP SP2, the limiter? Cheers
" My primary HD is a SCCI.......if I mounted the second IDE HD, as a storage HD,are there any "hidden" obvious problems? "
No. Your boot order will have the scsi included, probably as first or second boot. Any way the slave will have no operating system so it will not boot.
120 gig is not so big by todays standards, if you are unsure of the bios or would like a larger drive, then you could use a pci controller card. This would let you use say a 200gig or 300gig hard drive as slave.
Also there is a special offer at aldi at the moment. A 250gig external usb2.0 hard drive with built in card reader and extra usb ports for £99. Not a bad deal:-)
