Question about Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600AAJS 160 GB SATA Hard Drive
Is there any recommended way to use my ext drive with my int. drive? I am interested especially interested in editing home videos.
Just plug that baby in.
When you format it you will have a new drive in your my computer.
From their you can use it just like your c drive. However you'll just select the (For example it comes up as F:) F:\ drive to save to.
Their are more complex ways of using the drive, and integrate it with your C:\ space. However when you have some hardware problems you could loose all the information so i do not recommend that.
What to do?
Plug in the drive then boot up the pc
If nothing comes up in My Computer then:
Right Click My Computer
Click Disk Manager
A little wizard will pop up, follow the instructions, and when the option comes to format FORMAT in NTFS! this is important for larger than 4gb files.
While your editing home movies you will most likely break that 4gb barrier fast :)
