Question about Compaq Evo D510 Ultra-Slim (470043-542) PC Desktop
Yes you may be able to,but it depends on some things and how you want to add them.
if you want to have them as an internal device ,ie in the case and always available with your operating sytem, then you need to know what conection they require to be plugged in. some examples are sata,ide,scuzzi.most latest hard drives are sata ,the most popular are ide though.im guessing you most likely have ide hd's.
good thing with them is you can connect two harddrives on the same ide cable.you have to set 1 up as master the other as slave.this is done by adjusting the jumpers on the physical hard disk.the jumpers are located on the bottom corner of the hd next to the power and ide interface.their willl also be a diagram to show how to set master/slave on the hd in most cases.
benefits are more storage and speed but in the above case because you use the same cable for both disks.
if you dont know alot and are not confident in installing them personally and just require more space,i iwould suggest buying a cheap kit $20 ,and using your spare \hd as an external usb disk.
if ive assumed wrong or you need more help ,let me know
good luck and let us know how it pans out
