Specs: Windows XP
The original writer drive is(IDE)interface.Picked up a new 1 but did nt notice its a(Sata)inter. Will this work w my emach-T6520 Windows XP? What needs 2 be done? I see on the mother board 3 sata data connections but not a adapter connection. The comp has the E:/ drive which is the 1 wanting 2 replace, then there is the F:/ drive which is a liteon LTN-489s. Is this possible with the writer drive E:/ Sata & the cd-rom F:/ being (IDE)?

First you will need to get the drivers for your SATA drive onto your machine (since you will not be able to use the SATA drive to do it).
Second you will need to remove (delete) the drive you are removing from Device Manager.
Third you will need to make sure you have SATA data cord, and a SATA power plug (or SATA power adapter) --- I guess you should have checked this first!
Fourth you install and plug in your drive. When windows asks you for the driver for your hardware, point it to the correct file and continue.
Windows will set whatever drive letter it 'likes', that is the one you use (no reason to try setting manually).
