I currently have a 40GB primary Hard Drive and a 60GB slave hard drive, however I have run out of room and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if my idea will work...
I am using a Dell PC, Dimension 8200 with a P4 1.7GH, 256RDRAM, and Windows XP home. I have a CD-RW/DVD-ROM currently connected as the primary device on my second IDE cable (the one which leads to cd roms, etc) and I was wondering if I would be able to use the slave IDE hookup to install a third 60GB hard drive? Would the OS recognise the drive, or would it just simply ignore it? I would hate to go and buy another hard drive and find out that it won't work, so any imput, ideas, etc would be greatly appreciated.
