I recently built a new computer and would like to use the old HD as the secondary (slave?) drive for it. Right now I have a 120gb HD as my main. When I tried to connect the two together using the IDE ribbon cables, my computer didn't detect either HD. Maybe I'm not suppose to do it like that? It was pretty hard getting both of them connected because the part of the cable that attaches to the Motherboard is so close to part I'm suppose to plug into the HD. Had to place the HD at just the right spot on the tray.
I hope my question wasn't too confusing
Maybe I could of worded that better.
edit: Oh I forgot one more thing. If I manage to get it to work, how would I remote the old HD? I used Win98 on it and I'm running WinXP currently.
