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....

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!

What is compatible hdd with amd athlon products?

Hard drives are standardized, and have been for years. Any hard drive that uses the controller type provided by your motherboard (IDE/PATA or SATA) will work. If the motherboard was manufactured before 2002, you should probably use a drive less than 127 GB, because the space above that area may be inaccessible.

USN external harddisk

You shouldnt need drivers unless its a Windows 98 PC. Right click my computer and select manage, when the box pops up select disk management. You should be able to see the drive and format it for use.
