Topic: transfering files to new disk

    transfering files to new disk

    I am upgrading my sample drive from a 30 gig to an 80. The drive I am replacing is on my second IDE master buss.
    Can anyone tell me how to move my sample files to the new disk without using removable media. I assumed I could do it like I do on my Mac by using the CD cable to attach the new drive and then copy my files between disks. When I tried this my pc did not show me the new disk. Does the disk automatically show up in windows? Any of you pc experts help me out?

    You have to partition and format the drive first. If you\'re using Win9x/ME, click on Start, then Run, and type FDISK. If you\'ve got it hooked up correctly (I\'m assuming you checked on bootup, and saw the new drive there?), option 5 changes the drive. Select the 80 gig drive, and then create a new partition. Go ahead and create the maximum size allowed. exit FDISK, and restart the computer. Then the drive will show up. Go into My Computer, right-click on the drive, and select Format. When that\'s done, you can drag and drop the files. If you\'re uncomfortable with ANY of this, have a PC guy do it.
