i recently bought a samsung 1 tb sata hardrive (HD103SI). my motherboard has sata docks.my question is this, is it possible to hook-up and run both the sata hd and the 4 ide hds long enough to transfer info from ide's to the sata? if so, how? any info would be greatly appreciated!

you can run sata and ide at the same time.

what system do you have?
i am running win 7. i want to install an os on the new sata hd, then tranfer the information from the 4 ide hds to the sata hd, so that i can disconnect and get rid of the ides, leaving just the sata as my only hd. but just exactly how do i do this?

Hi,

As mentioned yes you can but what you want to do exactly ?please add more information to your query.

Thanks

Hi,

Connect your sata hard disk to pc and install your os on it disconnecting the other hard drives on it,after installation of os and drivers you can connect all the ide or one by one copying your data to new hard disk .

Thanks
