So I just built a bad ass new PC but I put my old HDD in it as a slave because it has all my music and games such as wow and the like on it.

My question is how do I get the programs to work with my new HDD. like iTunes and all that jazz

    This might just be a bunch of bullshit coming out of my mouth, but it was my understanding that if you take your previous OS drive and make it slave, that due how programs call on the registry they will not have the information they need. So they won't run correctly.

    So, you'd have to modify the registry on your new OS drive to recognize those programs and how to call on them. Easiest way would probably be just to reinstall everything, or swap it around so you keep your old OS drive and make your new drive a slave.
