What operating system are you using?

Did you get a disk w/your new drive? Most some with a disk to copy drive over.

You can probably, put your new HD in jumpered as a slave, and the use your CD to image your old HD to the new one. Then, you pul the old one out and re-jumper the new one as the Master.

May sound harder than it really is, but it's not. ;)

Let us know if you have more questions.
