Got a New Harddrive but no space in the case.

Was thinkin of takein the Floppy Drive out and chagein it for the H/D, other thing aswel is it would be Right under the CD/RW.

Would that be a good idea??

**The PC was brough from a PC World, Packard Bell Computer thats why theres no space lol
60+60+60+80+cdrw+dvd-rom+250 internal zip drive+floppy - you're not trying hard enough :D
can we see the internals of the case so we can better help you?
@ sboulema was thinkin about that

@ PseudoKiller lol :eek:

oh c'mon you can do that

1) in the cage with the first hard drive. You'd need to drill some holes and probably a fan right above eit.

2) On the bottom of the case.

3) Remove cage that is there and relocate it to inder the floppy and do as in (1)
Nar still insured for 2 more years so cant go doin stuff like that or will Void the insurance :(

Probley going add it has a External gona go to the Local PC shop tommrow to check the External cases :)
I like the external case idea. Just pick up an inexpensive external USB drive case from Newegg and slap it in there. Makes a nice backup drive...
try ebay for an external case, i did. i got a firewire case for $40.

The case im gona get is £42:50 :eek:
Got some good reviews, read about some and they dont cool the H/D enough
who really needs a floppy????

even if u wanted to boot from it all new boards can boot from a USB device like a keychain disk.
well as i see it if you have a keychain disk i dont see a need but if u want to keep the floppy than waht about the space behind the origional HDD? like they said all u need to do is drill holes but you can also just go out and spend 30$ on a new ATX case that is more upgradable than that, but you can only do that if the back panel on that computer is an ATX plate and not something wierd

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
