    Ok I have a 40GB hard drive and I just got a new 160GB hard drive, I need to know if there is any way to merge them into one single 200GB hard drive? I am running windows XP.

    I'm thinking I real noOb question but if shows on your computer as C: 40 gb and D: 160 mb what 's the difference ? You have two HDD so make the larger one the master the smaller one slave for music or photos ,things you want to keep .

    Yes, it's quite easy if you make both drives dynamic. You can then give the non-system drive a mount point on the system drive (effectively a folder) rather than a drive letter.

    However, if you want to break that relationship later you could have big problems so it really isn't worth the hassle. Better to follow the advice of peat moss.

    So would it be better for me to format the HD with the operating system on it and then make the larger HD the master and put the operating system on that then make the smaler HD the slave.

    No just the opposite. OS on 40GB as master. And 160GB storage & slave.

    I know just bash it a couple of times and it should do what you want it to do. I do that when my burner dies on me. I kick it and the next time i burn it i have no problems.
