right click "my computer", explore, right click on the new drive and choose format. Choose ither NTFS or FAT. What ever your heart desires.

this is not true. You can make it a slave off a CD-Rom as he has done.

Sorry about first post, you replied as I replied. Have you double checked the jumpers? Also WD has a good install disk you can find on there site. Easiest to installing a HD in my option

Filling it up is easy. according to the guru's of computer system administration any time you double system capacity the new capacity will be consumed within 6 months.

I beleive. Doubled mine last Sept. and I started pruning to make room last night.
