I was just reading an article in a computer magizine compairing 7200  RPM hard drives and their is very little difference between. THe change comes if you want a fast hard drive for gaming with you would not want anyway.   If it is an old Dell it has most likely an ide drive. Make sure to buy the same. Windows Xp only supports 320 Gbytes I beleive. Anything above that is subdivided if used as the  system drive.   Newegg.com  is reasonable and has a good slection of hard drives. Some Walmart have hard drives.

I have an old (1995) maxtor disk model 71626AP out of my old computer. I think I want to install it as a slave in my windows/XP desktop computer. Other than removing the jumper at J20, is there anything...


Windows will recognize it. Just be sure the other drive is jumpered as master/primary and the old drive is jumpered as slave/secondary and that they connect to the same IDE cable.

I have an old Dell desktop and want to replace HD


From experience I recommend a Western Digital Hard Disk Drive as I have had far less problems with them then Seagate - As IDE is gradually being phased out I recommend acting soon as the drives will become scarce as they are very cheap and lacking in variety at the moment.

In particular the Western Digital Caviar WD5000AAKB is a good value drive - just over a hundred dollars and features 500GB of space 7200RPM and a 16mb Cache

It seems the best for value at the moment once again I advise you not to delay as vendors are gradually phasing them out.


Hope this information pointed you in the right direction ;)

Support can be found at Seagate.com in case this is not the exact drive. The model number you listed was not an exact match.
