Question about Seagate Technology 500GB Pipeline HD SATA 3Gb/s Internal Hard
This hdd is from a lorex security dvr. i want to put it in my pc, with a seagate baricuda 7200.10 that is currently my storage, but i want to transfer all my music and video, and some other storage onto the pipeline and make the baracuda my new main hdd , as my current main hdd is an ide drive. my goal here is to switch to strictly sata, and disable the ide channle in bios to concentrate my recources on more important areas.
Use Disk Wizard. No 3rd party tools are required at all.
Scenario: 1 Pipeline SATA. 1 Barracuda SATA. 1 IDE drive with current OS. Is this correct?
Just treat the Pipeline from the DVR as an extra drive by formatting it, and moving the files over. You then can remove the IDE and Pipeline for peace of mind, but the OS advance setup should give the option of all three drives for install destination.
Leaving the IDE drive should not affect your resources.

Windows 7 will format an external partition to FAT32, as long as it's 32GB or less. "Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Options". Right click on "Computer Management", select "Run as an Administrator", double-click on "Storage" then "Disk Management", the right click on your external drive. Select "Shrink Volume", shrink it by 32GB or less, then right click on unallocated space, select format, and "FAT32" will show up as an option during the format wizard.
This is a way to create a small bit of space on an external hard drive for copying some files from Mac OS's to Windows.
