i'm a mac person.. i have a small pc just for directivo purposes, ethernet and 2.5.2 is working fine..

I upgraded my tivo with one 160g drive and have the old 40g drive sitting around.. i want to add it to my pc. how do i reformat, plug in and use the drive as a secondary drive on the pc? I'm using windows2k and want to format the hard drive with a fat 32 file system to i can backup my tivo drives..

thanks

It's an IDE drive. There's nothing special about it so install it like you would any other. Teaching PC basics isn't what we're all about. You're expected to know them before you come here.

Hint: Create a logical partition using fdisk and then create a logical drive. Partition Magic is an excellent utility for doing these types of chores.
