Floppy Drive to Hard Drive

Is it possible for me to replace my Floppy Drive with a new Hard Drive so I can get more space?

How much do Hard Drives usually cost for 100 Gigs?

Sorry, computer-noob here.

No need to replace the floppy drive...you can add a hard drive for additional space.
Newegg is a decent site to get an idea on prices.

floppies are always used eventually because of core architecture.
keep one- you'll never know when you need it until its too late.
 
Where would I put the new hard drive? I already have C:, D:, F: (Disk) and A: (Floppy).

Does that mean there's space in my computer for a B: and E:?

The only way to find out is to open up the machine and see. Depending on the chassis, you may have room from 0 to 10 hard drives in there. Yes, as a final resort you can throw out the floppy drive and use that 3.5" bay to hold the hard drive.

It should be easy to open (maybe not bvious at first glance, but easy) - some srews in the back or some latches somewhere. If you are not technically inclined enough to open up the computer then you shouldn't think about messing with the contents at all..

We are talking about a desktop computer here, right? You can't add hard drives to laptops - only replace the existing one.

Perhaps posting more details on your machine would assist on steering you down the right path...
