  • Hard Drive question

    Well, since I'm building an economical computer I needed a hard drive.
    I found my gnomad zen creative mp3 player with a 20g HD, I dropped it a while a go and it ****ed up. I didn't have a warranty....anyway I took out the HD and got a mini-IDE to IDE converter and hooked it up to my computer.

    I was just wondering on how to mount it on the case?
    I don't know if this HD has any added shock resistance.

    any thoughts?

    the elegent way is probably to make an adapter bracket. I'd probably just be lazy and epoxy mounting rails on somewhere.

    I wouldn't worry about shock. Normal drives do fine without anything special, and that drive is inherently less prone to shock due to it's smaller size.
