    HD Transfering

    Just wondering how I can transfer all the data from an older HD in one computer to a newer HD in another computer without networking.
    Is it possible to set the old HD as a slave and connect it to my new HD's IDE cable? Will it detect it problem free? I just worry about that because they both have primary partitions, and I think that would cause some kind of conflict.

    Any help would be appreciated to the max....thanks in advance.

    Most HD's you get will come with software to allow you to image your main to your new drive.

    Just my 2 cents, I'd save all my critical data ect ect and reformat the new drive then reload it with programs and saved data. That way your starting fresh.

    If you don't feel like doing a fresh install (which is best) see if you can find a demo of Norton's Ghost .
