My HDD will going to corrupt, so i need to buy one, but i don't know that which HDD is compatible with my AMD Athlon XP 2000 PC. Could any one suiggest that how much maximum capacity HDD Support my PC....


Hi,
Hard Disk upto 500GB capacity can be added to most of the PCs. As regards compatibility, first you have to check the motherboard for SATA Hard Disk interface as newer hard disks are SATA. Adding the hard disk has nothing to do with the processor. However, motherboard should have the connecting port/ option (such as SATA). Some motherboards support both IDE and SATA devices. Please check the motherboard for SATA Port. You may find the motherboard model/ system model and google a bit for its specification. (You have mentioned AMD Athlon XP 2000, which is the Processor not the motherboard)

If SATA is available on your motherboard, you may add Sata drives of 250-500-750GB drives according to you requirements. Otherwise you have to look for IDE hard Disk.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Can I transfer data from 250GB IDE HDD to a SATA II 500GB HDD


Yes you can. You may have to go in BIOS or and select your SATA as the first drive to boot off of though, else it might try to boot off the old IDE. But once you're in windows, it will appear as another drive in my computer.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

I have A8N-VM Motherboard and 250GB IDE HDD. Can i connect 500GB SATA II HDD and transfer data from my IDE HDD to SATA II HDD


Assuming you have a Asus A8N-VM CSM GeForce 6150 Motherboard then if you have a SATA cable that works for that or an adapter for the SATA II if it wont fit it should be fine and you can have both in at once. So there would be no need to transfer but if you want you could.

If im not getting this please let me know and I will try to help you more.

Change of hard disk from 160 gb ide to 250 gb sata


Hello there.

I checked the specifications on your motherboard from here .

As you can see it does indeed support SATA Hard Drives, as per the page:

SATA Four-Channel Serial ATA supports 4 SATA II devices

Each SATA hard drive uses up 1 of the channels, so you can use a total of 4 SATA drives at once.

Hope this helps.
