I just installed a new 500Gb HDD and installed XP.  I have an old 40Gb HDD that I want to remove and in turn use my original 320Gb HDD as a slave drive.  Will this cause problems since XP is on the 320 drive too?  I assume I will have to format using disk management?  Thanks for any input.

I just started using FF3.5 recently and found that I don't have the ability to do copy and pase functions.  Is there some work around or add-on I'm missing?

Well after 4 years with this HDD and never having to reload Windows due to using FD-ISR imaging program I finally have to bite the bullet.  I have an older AMD Athlon processor with a MOBO that uses IDE HDDs.  My question is, is there a PCI adapter that can adapt SATA HDDs to use on an IDE MOBO so I don't have to buy a new drive when I build a new system (someday)?  I found a 500Gb IDE HDD on Newegg for about $80.00, but some of the SATA drives are cheaper these days.  I woul...

Now with the release of what is being called the final version of IE8 will it be safe to upgrade to IE8 or will WC be staying with IE7?  I tried IE8 months ago and had site issues at WC, are these things being resolved?

This game that is being sold on Impulse states that it requires a 3.0 Ghz CPU.  Is that possible or could it be a typo?  I use a single core 32 bit Athlon 3200 2.2 Ghz.  Most other games I see in the same genre don't have such high requirements.

I'm using XP SP2 fully patched and IE7.  For some time now I have to refresh every page I visit at WC to make sure it's up to date.  This is really a nuisance on the forums.  Has anyone else had this issue?  Also everything is sooo slow again if it loads at all.

OD in Stardock Central shows premium skin not installed and it won't finish the install process (hanging up at install action). However the Turbo skin as noted in the readme text is installed.

The premium suite folder under C:\program files\stardock\object desktop\premium suites has only a readme text that says the suite "Quest" is supplied, however there is nothing else in the folder, yet it shows as installed in SD Central.

WB6 won't update. It sticks at install actions. It can't be c...

Newbie here. I love running WB and upon checking out desktops for DX I find few that are listed for 1680x1050 resolution. This is the only resolution (native) that really works well on this 22" monitor. I was checking out parts of DX that are resolutin independant, so I guess those will work. Can I use things from DX such as sidebars at the same time as using WB? Thanks!

I recently purchased Window Blinds, but am now considering an upgrade to Object Desktop. Do I need to uninstall Window Blinds before installing Object Desktop and if so, can I save the themes, etc. that I already have? Thanks for help, I'm a real newbie.
