Hmm.. Whatever, ill say it.


What I wanna do is take the harddrive outta my old computer, and slave it into my computer for a short while. It is a hardrive with an OS on it. So, I dont want to keep it on my computer or make it a master. I just want to stick it in my computer copy all my music onto it, and stick it back into my old computer. Use it for backup.

And my current question is do I hook it up on my computer and then boot it and change in bios, or do I restart, change in bios, shut off and then put the drive in?

Just slave it, and copy all the music over, make a file on the drive called "Music" and just copy and paste everything into it?

Yeah, but do I change in bios before I connect drive, or do I connect drive, then change bios?

Do it before, I always do. Sometimes the master can become corrupt if the BIOS is not set correctly.

BIOS first!
