HARD DRIVES IN COMPOSITE BAYS - laptop
I have my laptop in my car now, and would really like to put my HD in the cdrom/floppy bay, but i have no real idea if i can pull an ide port out od the connector inside.
The laptop is an early gateway 2000.
the hd ive got lined up is a laptop hd, so power consumption should be ok. is the connector in the expansion bay an IDE connector with power or some proprietry crap
any help will get you a big kiss
Is the hard drive that you want to mount a 2.5" or 3.5" HDD?

thanks. that sort of puts me in a direction.
