Question about HP Pavilion dv8000t Notebook

Dual hard drive on laptop

My kids have almost filled up the 75 mb C Drive on an HP dv8000 laptop. It is equipped with a second hard drive of equal size.

What can I do to shift some of this to the second drive - which I assume is not bootable?

Thanks for the ideas...

If the laptop is recognizing the second hard drive, open the programs from you first hard drive and select the programs to be transfer by right click with you mouse on the program to be transfer and select copy. Now open the have the second hard drive open and right click again and select paste.
Do the same procedure for all of them.
You can also transfer several programs as well by pressing ctrl on the keyboard and use the left button from you mouse to select them, once you have them selected, release the ctrl key and right click with your mouse > copy > second hard drive > right click and paste.
Once you have transfer the programs you needed, you can go back to the first hard drive and delete the files you already have on your second hard drive.
Good Luck.

    The music files will play from any drive as long is connected to the computer, as ctf1800 suggested to create a new folder in d:\ drive and once you download more music files, you can save them on your d:\ drive instead of c:\ drive.

Create a folder on the d:\ drive and call it music and then move the music files on the c:\ to d:\music

Dear! It show perfect because 1Gb = 1024 MB so if you calculate it you will find it equal to 298 GB because it is binary system shows while vendors account 1GB = 1000 MB but we format it according to binary machine language so that's equal to 298GB. I hope you have make sense.
Thank You

My HP DV8000 will not play DVD's anymore


i guess you need to replace the DVD player now. it may not show any damaged sign on the out side. the laser inside of the dvd player most likely suffered damage.
