The Seagate disk, based on a quick web search, appears to be a SATA drive. The Western Digital appears to be an EIDE (Parallel ATA).

You would need both a SATA controlled and a EIDE controller in the same machine. One way to accomplish that is to buy an external case to put one of the disks in. There is also a test device which allows you connect a drive for testing, for example:


If your computer does not have both controllers, you could also buy a controller for it, but personally I think an external case is more useful since you can use it for backups.
