ThinkCentre SD50/8183 -- 2nd Hard Drive??

I am thinking about adding a second 3.5" hard drive which was pulled from my other computer. That hard drive is IDE and this computer is SATA. I bought the adapter from IDE to SATA. Will that work with this or not. Is that the correct adapter from IDE to SATA?? Hope that I bought the right adapter if not then I will have to return the adapter. Let me know about this to make sure the right adapter. Now the hard drive that I pulled out have no operating sysem in it. The first one is but I plan not to use it because only of 40GB and the second is 80GB. Look forward to see the reply of my quesiton.

 

Thank you,

 

John

Re: ThinkCentre SD50/8183 -- 2nd Hard Drive??

After read the older messages here in this forum and did not realize there is no room for another hard drive to put in the desktop. Guess that I have to take the small hard drive out then put the bigger hard drive in the computer.

 

Thank you,
