Hope that someone can answer my question here.
I am upgrading my self built desktop's hard drives and would like to use at least 1 of the 4 WD Caviar SE16 250 gB SATA
drives as an external drive hooked up to a Dell Insperon desktop. I do realize that I will need to get a case for this drive.
Question is, will the Dell 'recognize' this drive from the get go? Will I need to change a setting in the bios?
It's been my experiences with Dell's in the past that they refuse to acknowledge anything hooked up to them that is not Dell produced, a card reader comes to mind.
How is it then that external drive manufacturers can market drives that are plug and play for a Dell?
Am I getting too far ahead of myself here and just try it perhaps?
