Nothing is sure. But it should be just fine for 99.99% of the machines like this.
And be sure you research the master/slave issue since I see many use the slave setting on 80 conductor cables which should use the cable select setting.
well im back with a question about an internal drive, after looking around and talking to a few people, an internal drive is now being considered. I have a Dell computer with 256 MB RAM and 40 gigs of drive capacity right now. I opened the computer with my roommate who has built two computers. I have an open bay where another hard drive could go but then my roommate told me it would have to be hooked to the other one and made the slave since it would only be used to store music on. my question is if this would be a smart move. If i were to put a new 80 gig drive in, would my computer be able to handle it, and not slow it down much and or make it crash? I also have XP runnning on it that came with the machine. Any comments would be appreciated.
