input on hdd install


Recommended Posts

what other drives do you have. cable select is the safe option, means you don't worry about what plug on the cable you use. just format it with windows. if you feel the need to wait, check the mfr website to see if they have a low level format utility. but low leveling can in some rare cases screw up the drive.

what's the other hdd? if it is of a similar generation as the new one, you should hook those two as master/slave on the primary ide and the cd on the secondary.

although i will admit that most hdds and cds nowadays run in the fastest transfer modes anyway so juggling shouldn't be necessary at all.
