Hi Wildabeast, Thanks for the reply.
Right at this moment I'm not sure if those suckers are SATA or IDE, however, I'm guessing that when I pry my PC case open that there should be some sort of tag, on the Hard Drive itself, telling me which one they are.
Check the jumpers
Here I have got to admit that I have no earthly idea where to find the jumpers, but I have a feeling I'm gonna be learning real quick
Hi hamluis, Thanks for the reply.
If you are connecting the additional drive to an existing cable with one drive already on it, just check the jumper settings of the already-connected drive and you will know which way to go.
OK, that's what I'll be doing.
I've already gotten brave enough to peek inside of one of the PC cases and it has a flat ribbon looking cable that hooks up to the Hard Drive and it has an extra thingy that looks like it ought to hook up to a second Hard Drive.
Here again I have to say I haven't a clue as to where to look for that 'jumper' thingy or what I'm looking for. But I'm thinking that I had seen a little red slide type switch in there somewhere.
Would one of you mind telling me where to look for that jumper so that I don't get myself electrocuted poking around inside one of these things.
