I would like to replace the original Quantum Fireball ATA/33 6GB drive with a 60GB Western Digital ATA/100 drive with 2MB of cache. The computer is a 500MHz PIII HP desktop with a 100MHz bus, using Windows 2000 Workstation Professional as the OS.
My questions are:
1. Will it work or, will it damage either the drive or the computer hardware?
2. If it is OK to change, what % gain would be in data access/transfer rate? (since all my work is database related)
