Re: hard drive problem
well first of all....your main drive is an SATA drive, thus the different connector. Second, you need to format the new hard drive before windows will recognize it, if it came with a diisk, put that in and format it that way, or go to the device manager and you should be able to format it there.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
