I just bought (2) 2tb. So I should run them in Raid 1?

Does it matter which SATA port I plug my DVD player into?

No. If you curently do not have a backup drive you should not use RAID.

Use one for back up and the other for data.

like any other hard drive.

Once they are in just go into disk management and then initialize and partition them: www.overclock.net/t/1227647/how-to-initialize-and-format-a-new-disk-for-use-in-windows

Accidental Replacement Warranty by Service Net
Accidental Damage from Handling coverage begins at the time of purchase. Mechanical failures are covered after the manufacturers' warranty expires (except 1 yr ADH plan where only ADH coverage exists). Shipping charges are covered under the plan ( more info )
