I currently have a Samsung SP0802N 80GB hard drive(IDE), click here . I am soon to be building a completely new system consisting of two Maxtor DiamondMax 9 hard drives(one 80GB one 120GB, both IDE) click here . I want to transfer data from my current Samsung drive to one of the Maxtor drives(one will be used for storage).
If I connect the storage drive to my current system and just copy and paste my music and important files from one to the other could I then put the Maxtor in the other system with the files on it and then install Windows on the other?

Do these Maxtor DiamondMax 9 drives need any drivers on floppy etc. I know the SATA ones do, but what about the IDE ones??
