New Sata HD question

  zemdarin 15:17 19 Sep 07

I have a new computer base with Sata HD and XP installed. It also came with DVD R/W installed on the IDE master. Could I change the DVD R/W to the 2nd IDE as master and slave with the one from my old computer. Then put my IDE HD onto the master IDE as master with cable select? which at the moment is blank and not formatted.

Yes, if the computer has two IDE connectors on the motherboard. Some new motherboards just have one, so they can take just two devices.

Thank you for reply. It does have two IDE connectors it was the jumpers that I was worried about. The other thing that bothers me at the moment is the builders put stickers on the back, if removed would make the guarantee void. Never seen that before. Computer Planet.
