Thanks again folks. my bro decided to get the Hitachi travelstar 80gb, 5400 rpm on newegg.com
Now, what's the best way to transfer all of his data from his old HD to the new? I heard you can ghost it, if ghosting it, how do i go about doing that? is there a tutorial to it? or use a usb cable to transfer all of the data to a desktop pc and then transfer from the desktop back to the new HD? make any sense?
