i have my 80 gig hooked up and all is fine.. now i want to take my old 20gig and throw it on here to hold movies and music i own.

i guess i want to;

1) format to NTFS (which is currently what my 80gig is)
2) turn off / hook up hdd ~ on the same connector, or does it not matter?
3) turn on

from there im concerned what its going to do, or not do.

you don't want to set up a raid array. raid arrays are ment to be used with two or more identical drives. so just hook up the harddrive like any other (making sure it's set as master or slave) and turn it on and go into disk management in windows and partition and format it there. it can be on the same cable or a different one, it doesn't matter.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
