Upgrading a har drive on a desktop is pretty easy. just open the case (while powered down) pull out the hard drive and copy down the make and model. go to a computer store or online to newegg and buy a bigger drive in the same interface (ie. IDE or sata).

there is usually detailed instructions has to how to do the data swap and how to set the jumpers on with the new drive.

Good luck

Are you using sp1? I think that this is the only version of xp that don't support SATA. Then it's time to upgade to sp2 at least.

Problems with my hard drive


You should be able to slave the old harddrive to the new one regardless of manufacturer. In the event that the drive is not "browseable" via Windows explorer, you should still be able to use DOS commands to copy the data files from the old harddrive to the new one.

Acer hard drive


Hi, the problem is one hard drive ie the 1/3 one is a SATA hard drive, the other is IDE.
to set them both up you need to do this,
Connect the IDE Hard Drive using the IDE cable like before.
With the Acer Hard Drive you need a Sata cable cost about a £1 from any shop.
You connect the sata cable from the hard drive to the motherboard, but on the motherboard you are looking for a small red connection same size as the cable, SATA is on most motherboards for machines that are just over a year old.

Hope it helps.
Have a nice christmas
