Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I am preparing to use a Western Digital WD800JB-00JJC0 hard drive for the first time. I will be using the unit as an external drive back up after loading acronis software on my PC. I see on the unit sticker a digram showing "Standard Settings" 'slave'; 'master w/ slave present'; and 'single or master'. Q.

I just picked one of those up a 1 Terabite Elements . It was plug and play, just used a usb cable on it, and it shows up in "my computer" as a drive H. Yours should be similar. I used "snapshot" similar to acronis. You should be good to go. try a backup to the new drive. You should see it as soon as you plug it in. If you want to be super careful, shut down and plug it in then reboot. You shouldn't need to mess with anything. It's similar to the way a flash drive shows up, it should just appear in with your other drives. Just try it the way it came first It should be fine.
