I have an external hard drive that I want to work in conjuction with my regular C Drive. How do I get it to do that? For example I was downloading a DV tapes to burn a DVD but ran out of "C" hard drive and had to stop. I would think that if you ran out of space on one drive the other should kick in??

depending on what program you are using to rip the dv's to your hard drive, you will have to tell it which drive to save it on

example in "save as" you will have the option of which drive you will save the data on

I was using Roxio and it didn't ask me, it just captured the data in C. I will try it again later. Is there any way to get the 2 drives to work together?

When you say that, do you mean two hard drives working and appearing as one.
For example, if you have a 120 gb C drive and a 100 gb external drive...are you hoping to see them as a big 220 C drive. In that case, you are probably referring to a RAID 0 configuration. Check out this site: http://tech-report.com/reviews/2002q4/ideraid/index.x?pg=1
for more information.

Note sure, however, if you can do this with an external drive. Somebody back me up here.

Good luck!
