UPGRADING HDD QUESTION

Ultimately, I cloned my clone of the LE1700 onto the new HDD (Samsung 80GB HS082HB) in a new USB enclosure using my "monster" computer (desktop animation system). Then I removed the new HDD from the enclosure, installed it in the LE1700 and TA DA! Everything booted up without a hitch! I am elated!

FYI: I was fortunate to have the Toshiba cable (IDX 80 LF-3292P) in my LE1700 despite the fact that I had a Hitachi 30GB HDD. This cable is completely compatible with my new Samsung HDD.

All is very well with the world. I think I'm on my way to becoming a techno-geek!

(Thank you all for your help as I progressed through the stages of pulling all my hair out.)

Way to go mate, glad to hear it worked for you.

Next time you ever have to run a job like this it will be quicker to plug both drives in to your "MONSTER" desktop and clone directly from the old to the new.

Cheers
