Old Computer, New 200GB Drive


Windows Perfectionist
16 Jan 2004
Well first of all I have A spare PII Celeron kicking around that works perfectly fine so I was thinking I could put my 200GB WD in it for file storage and what not, but of course the computer wont detect it and I have already checked into a bios update on that board and the company told me it will ever only see 60GB max with an update.

So.. is there any other way around this? I have a lil 6GB in it that I can run windows from if I need to.

The only this I can think of is some sorta USB or PCI device that I'm not aware of. Any suggestions?
Use an IDE Controller card, I have the card in the link installed in three systems.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
