ok i read i don't need jumpers for sata.
however, i still have to go into disk managment and it looks like this:
i need help on that please.
and i see the new drive shows only 930 GB on it.. any links on that ?
(sorry for all those unrelated questions, i'm googling for answers)
chose MBR and got an error message about failing the process cause drive is unallocated ??
i feel something's not right here..

ok just ignored all that and formatted two partitions.
now to try ubuntu
931 GB (binary notation) = 1TB (decimal notation).
it's the 1kB (binary notation) = 1024B (decimal) conversion.
.......It's fine.

Why is disk management showing 2 unallocated disk 1s ?

i don't know but after formatting and partitioning it seems ok now.
should i be worried?

tried all data recovery software i could find and all failed to find anything on my corrupted/unallocated IDE drive..
(easyus, pc inspector, testdisk).. any other desperate option besides paying a lot of money?

* if i'll try recovering from another pc would i have a bigger chance?
is there any recovering software which scans before loading windows (via cd)?

finally transferred my major files.
95% corrupted
if one software manage to recover files but they're corrupted, it means all recovery apps will find the same corrupted files?

hi i have not forgotten about you i have been unwell with influenza been led up in bed for 3 days yes i expect that most of the free software will be limited but just say if you bought a file recoverer and that still did not work and it cost you i can see you getting mad i use external drives for important files so they are easily transferable just unplug the usb and put on another pc im sorry to say you have learnt a big lesson in using third party driver updaters
