I have recently purchased a 1 gig harddrive to replace a .5 gig drive that came with my computer.  Is there a way you can connect these two drives where the computer would treat it like it's one 1.5 gig hard drive?

SMetzgar,
No, it can't be done.
Let me know if you need help to set up the new drive, though.
Regards,
Ralph

You can still use the two hard drives as two separate ones.
The cable to your older drive should have one more IDE connector for another hard drive. If not, most computers have 2 IDE connectors off the motherboard for a total of 4 hard drives. Connect the hard drive correctly. Make sure the red side of the cable goes near the side of the power connector. When you then turn on your computer, go to the BIOS and let it autodetect the new hard drive. If you need more help let me know and include more specific details of your system, like operating system, devices connected, etc.

There is software that you can buy that will let you use to hard drive as big one.
