 Ho Bartyb, all I can do is assume due to the lack of facts about specifics. I answered the question in a truthful and factual manner. I would be happy to assist the op if they contact me directly so that I can gain more information.

kind regards, Martin

Hi Bartyb,

Down loading onto a memory stick sounds a great option to me, I am based at St Nicolas du Pelem only 20 mins away from you. Can you email me contact details?

"Can I have two hard drives installed at the same time?"


Yup. You can have as many as you like if you have the inputs for them. I've never seen a computer with less than two inputs.

SATA replaced IDE in 2003 so it could be either and IF it is IDE it is highly unlikely there is an IDE internface on the new machine.

Hi Martin,

Can I have two hard drives installed at the same time?

Posted by bartyb - 3 years ago

Well yes Martin, that's assuming the new computer isn't a compact case with only one hard drive slot and that the old hard drive is SATA or if it's eIDE that the new'puter has suitable connections AND that Pugsey is happy to open his nice new computer's box to have a look

Hi Pugsey, once your drive is installed in your new computer, you can simply copy files from one hard drive to the other.

kind regards, Martin
