So I got a new PC about 2 months ago. I opted for the "smaller" 80GB HD simply b/c my old PC, which fried, had a 120GB that I figured I'd either swap out or add on. When I got my new I come to find out that my old HD won't work b/c the connections are 2 different sizes. Is there a way around this?

Whats the specs involved here, if the new drive is SATA and the old one IDE you should still have IDE and it will hook up jus like it did on the old one they both dont need to be hooked up using the same interface.

Ok I'm an idiot with this. How do I find out? I have my old HD in front of me. I see it says something about an Ultra ATA Cable.
