Hard Drive addition

Archived from groups: comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.storage (More info?)

I have recently built a computer and put a new 80 GB hard drive in it.
I wanted to add my old hard drive as a slave but it has WIN XP on it.
I would like to add my old hard drive but not lose all the data that is
on it, ie. reformatting.
When I try to attach it to my computer i get the message: A Disk read
error has occurred. If there is any way to do this please let me know.

    Did you jumper it to be a slave? How about setting it up in the BIOS?
