Thank you all for the assistance.
I have installed the storage drive successfully, and formatted it.
Next I must install a tv tuner card in a PCI-E 1x slot. As mentioned previously, I expect static discahrge will be more of a danger in this case. I have a wrist strap, but have found it somewhat constraining; however, I will wear it anyway. I will follow your instructions during the installation. I am on a wooden floor, no carpeting.
Then, I wish to install an internal floppy drive in the expansion bay on my cpu, from my old Dell Dimension desktop. I have many 3.5" diskettes I wish to access.
I actually have 2 of these floppies. The first I purchased from a local supply shop. The cabling they supplied did not fit the Dell; I ended up ordering the unit from Dell anyway. I expect one of these will work with my HP Pavillion a4310f computer.
However, I have been unable to locate information concerning this on the HP website. The Dell installation was simple; I am hoping this will be also.
Any suggestions on what sort of difficulties I may encounter?
"Idle hands do the Devil's work", or so I've heard.
I am endeavering to stay as busy as possible.
Thank you again.
