OK, I have windows Xp home on my Sony RS422x. I want to add my old hard drive as the slave, it's a 40 gig WD. I understand about going to computer managment and intializing, paritioning and/or formatting......BUT, lol, I don't want to. I don't want to lose my data on my old hard drive. See, I'm a lil slow about computers. Whenever I installed an extra hard drive on my old pc, windows recognized it, no problems. With this PC, the bios and device manager recognize it, not explorer. Basically, I want to get my old files off my old hard drive and burn them on DVD, help me? pretty please?
