    other hardware tech forums?

    Hey all.
    I'm looking for help on adding a secondary hard drive that was from a machine that crashed to my new computer. I've done many searches but can't seem to find the step by step information I need.

    There was data on the old hard drive that I need to recover and put on my new machine.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks.

    SCSI or IDE Drive? Either way it is a very simple process. Most hard drives have the jumper configurations right on the label. If you want i would be happy to walk you through this step by step.

    Ill need to know what kind of drives you have and how you want to set it up. For example do you want the cdrom and the primary drive to share an IDE cable and have the secondary drive using its own IDE cable on the secondary IDE controller or vice versa, it sounds complicated but it is very easy.

    as far as a graphical walk through i couldent say. Let me know if you want me to walk you through it.
