Upgrading from 4600 to E521 - can I use my old HDs and DVD burners
I've got a Dell 4600 and I am thinking about upgrading to a E521. The
E521 uses SATA hard drives. Is there anyway that I could use one of my
older IDE (ATA-133) hard drives in the E521? Or would I have to use
them as external HDs. Can you install a IDE add on controller card?
I would also like to use my older DVD burners.
