    Wait, so you're trying to just switch all the data between the two drives? Unless you've got twice as much space as you need on one drive, that'll be tough... Is it possible to just make the slave the master and the master the slave?

    If you know the manufacturer of your hard drive, go to their website and download their hard drive utility. The utility usually has an option to transfer all the contents from one hard drive to another and it's free. You could also buy a copy of Norton Ghost. It's an excellent utility that I used to transfer all data from one hard drive to another. It also has other useful features.

    Well I would like to switch my drive with my OS and programs on it, because it uses only a certain amount of space onto my slave hard drive and vice versa because i want to use the bigger drive for porn and music :)

    I have a 60 and a 40, and my 40 only has 11 gigs left on it, and my 60 has 37 gigs left, and i am filling it with music quickly

    Hmm, that's a toughie. If you don't put anything more on the 60, you should be able to put the stuff from the 40 on the 60, then install windows on the 40 and copy all your data files back from the 60 (since if you've got 11 gigs left on the 40, that means you've got 29 gigs, which is less than the 37 gigs left on the 60).
