installing 3rd hard drive in Dell Inspiron 530
I installed the 2nd hard drive about 2 years ago, so everything is not fresh in my mind.
Im running windows 7.
The OS is on master my 2nd hard drive is slave on the ide.
Can I add this third hard drive and possibly slave it off a dvd drive that I have? I havent opened up my desktop to look inside to have all the answers. Im just posting this in advance to see if adding a 3rd drive is possible, what issues may arise, etc. I know there is another bay available inside.
I currently have a 500 gig(OS) and a 1.5TB connected. Im going to be adding a 2TB.
My PSU is 430W. I don't do any gaming and have the generic video card that dell installed in this 2007-08 desktop. So along with 3 hard drives, I will occasionally attach an external HD, other than that no other drain on the PSU. Can a 430W psu handle this load?
Anyone have a good youtube video or written tutorial for installing a 3rd hard drive. All my searches are pulling up "3rd party software" or installing a 2nd hard drive.
