OLD 200mb HardDisk.

By Tweakster
Aug 12, 2002
  1. Would i be able to connect a 200mb Harddisk to my compter, to copy the contents into an image with Norton Ghost. I have IDE CD CDRW and Hardisk already and would make this disk a temp Seconary slave. My mother board is June 2000 Bios dated im guessing this would auto detect 200mb disk. What Specs do u think 200mb disk would be any any probs which might arise?

    Cheers guys

    Yes that should work. Just use auto geometry. Mobo's IDE is backwards compatible.

    I don't think you would want to keep it on there long after the data was copied off of it, though. Such an old device is just taking up a valuable IDE channel.

    Thx for help;

    This will save me finding Drivers and stuff for this Aged Computers components if all goes pear shaped. Its for someone to learn how to use / break (invetible).
