You needed to know if you HD is an IDE ATA or an S ATA. The speed is about the same on all of them unless you go for a realy fast HD but they are noisy. You cable should work with your hardware if that is it's purpose. After you swap, do not attach the old hard drive back w/o reformatting it. If you cable and software does not work the their is other software that works very well to upgrade HD's. I personally use Acronis True Image. SOme upgrade HD's come with the software to upgrade with such as WD or Seagate.  I have a 1 Terabype in my computer as an extra drive but keep the OS as is and only place my data on the larger drive.

I have a calvary 1tb external hard drive and my computer is not recognizing it

I have found that computers 5 years and older often have problems recognizing Terabyte hard drives. If you know what motherboard you have i can look it up for you, but if it is an older computer, the motherboard likely wont support the size.

Not running

If you don't need any data, just replace the drive. 80 gig is like 35-45. 1 Terabyte is less than $100.
If you need anything off of the drive and it is not turning, be prepared to spend from $400 to a couple thousand.

How to configure the wireless linksys router with terabyte speed

The term terabyte is not related to speed. It designates the amount of storage capacity of hard drives. Ex.. if you have two 500G hard drives, your total storage capacity is 1 terabyte.

The available ethernet speeds are 10M, 100M, 1G, or 10G.
