You main HD needs to be set as Master on IDE 1, your CD Rom needs to be set as cable select or Master on IDE 2. And your second drive needs to be set as slave on either the IDE 1 or 2. Enter the bios and see if the drives have been found. Dont change anything, then save and exit.

If you in windows NT based system, it's possible. Start->My Computer->Tools->Folder options->View, uncheck Use simple file sharing. Then right click on any of your hard drives->Security. In Security you can pick users who will be able to get access for your hard drives locally and through network.

This simply isn't possible. Hard drives and floppy drives work in very different ways.

Hard drives in external disk drives are simply standard drives so it is possible to unscew them and put them in a pc. However it would be easier to buy a standard internal drive and copy the data across

Portable hard drives work by interfacing with whichever computer they are connected to. In most cases, this connection is established by USB. Once the portable drives are connected they allow the user access to the data contained on it and the drive's storage capacity.

There's no way you can install the CD / DVD drive from a Dell laptop in an iBook. The hard drive should be possible, as long as they are both IDE drives.

Two data transfer modes used by hard drives are UDMA and PIO. UDMA is more popular and stands for Ultra Direct Memory Access.

Laptop hard drives are very similar to desktop hard drives, indeed they work in exactly the same way and even use the same interfaces. However laptop hard drives are designed to be much smaller (2 inches as opposed to 3.5) and draw less power than desktop hard drives. As a result laptop hard drives are usually much slower in terms of data transfer and have much smaller storage capacity than a desktop hard drive of the same year manufacture. With an adapter it is possible to use a laptop hard drive in a desktop computer, and if mounted externally it is also possible to use a desktop hard drive on a laptop.

Permanant information is stored in hard drives, usb drives, cds, dvds and the temporary information is stored in RAM (Random Access Memory).

Yes. Xbox will take both internal and external hard drives. External meaning USB drives and internal meaning Microsoft or Brainydeal Hard Drives that you can find at your local GameStop or at Sears.com

Mac laptops may likely have solid state drives (not hard drives). Those drives are 2.5" form factor and can be replaced by hard drives.

There are tons of kinds of drives. Floppy Disk Drives, CD-ROM drives, PATA Hard drives, zip drives, flash drives, DVD drives, SATA hard drives.... The list could go on and on and on...

Commonly, external hard drives will acquire power from the computer it is connected to. It is possible, though, to connect external hard drives to an outlet and permanently to the computer, replacing the previous hard drive, though I highly do not recommend such.
