I have just bought this SATA Hard Drive:
and had a few questions. My motherboard (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=1649101
) does have SATA support, but I just am not sure how to set it up. I have read that I do not need to change the pins on the drive or anything (master/slave).
My power supply (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153023
) says it has SATA power cords, so does this mean that SATA hard drives use different power?
Also, is it hard to get Windows XP to recognize large sized drives on SATA?
Random question: i just bought a new power cable because my other one was giving me problems. Is it a better idea to use this brand new one or the one that comes with the PSU?
