Simply install it into your computer as a secondary drive.

I do not know if your drives are IDE/PATA or SATA, being that you have a drive called drive C: you can add the other drive as you had it before, as D: drive.

Once you have both drives active in your BIOS, you can access D: through your computer short, transfer the files you want from drive D: to drive C:

Thank you Bruce , but I really do not know enough about computers to even begin to know what you mean . I really appreciate your assistance though and think the best thing for me to do is get an expert to fix it for me :huh:

You can use a program...to move the space from your current D: partition to your C: partition.

I'm just curious as to why you would want to do this, though. A user is better off with two partitions, rather than just one, on a single hard drive.

From looking at the specs and manuals for your system, it can only hold one hard drive in its original configuration. So I think you currently have two partitions on one hard drive. A look in Disk Management would refute/confirm this.
