SATA Issues

Hi again, I have a older computer, as is the norm around here, a Celeron 1000Mhz, running XP. I recently picked up a PCI SATA Controller card, so I could take advantage of the Seagate 320GB 7200.10 I had. I moved all my music and pictures, a total of about 25GB, plus movies and other things to take ...

thanks, I was hoping for a more specific listing of types though... The past few days I've been looking at the Conroes, and I must say they ARE Tempting... as much as it would mean A complete new system as opposed to migrating stuff... and even if I don't get a conroe, waiting for 24/07 is probably ...

Then I ran chkdsk, which said 1 or more errors were found and fixed, but still wouldn't load. I reformatted again after that...
