I have recently bought a 200 Gig Seagate S-ATA hard drive for my PC for my Dell 8300 XPS. I intend on using this as my second drive, as my PC came with an 80 Gig IDE hard drive.
Just before installing the drive, I looked on the Dell website and it states that both of my drives need to be either ATA or IDE. The manual doesn’t say this. My motherboard supports S-ATA and I haven’t used these yet.
Can I simply buy an S-ATA cable (or some sort of S-ATA to IDE converter) or do I need to return the drive and replace it with an IDE (Which I don’t really want to do)?
Thanks in advance,
