post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, my current 80GB WD IDE drive is nearly full , only got about 5gb left, packed with games and music...

was thinking of investing a new drive, how do i go about this, is it as simple as plug an play, or do i need to go about formatting this new hard drive, and installing xp on it etc etc

heeeeeelp

Just buy a new one and install it. Should be just that easy unless you have to actually turn it on inside the bios.
