Accessing data on a HD that has XP on it

If a hard drive that currently has XP installed on it is relegated to a 2nd drive, and then a new drive is put in a computer and XP is installed, will there then be difficulties accessing the data on the old drive?

    There shouldn't be. How are you setting up the two drives? Are you running IDE or SATA?

    One of each, the newer one would be SATA.

    I just did this about a month ago. Shouldn't be a problem at all. If you just want to transfer the data, external hard drive enclosures are really cheap on newegg.com.
