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

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)

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...

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
