    Post Any great ideas on mounting a HDD?

    Anyone have any ideas on how to go about mounting a hard drive? Since I am only 17 I am still learning much and look to help from many others. Any ideas are needed for shock and if you have a webpage of an example it would help very much.

    yeah I looked at it I was curious about examples so I could use ideas cause I am having a time trying to think of a way to do it. But i just got a superstack II 3com hub to play with for about 50$ so that will keep me busy while I think of a way to mount the hdd.

    Cool

    People will argue with this, but the HD should be mounted vertically. This keeps the head from slamming against the disk. It can be suspended with elastics or springs. Some just use rubber bumpers, but they provide very little shock protection. R/C car shocks have been used, but they can get expnsive. If you are so inclinded, you can mount the whole player on springs like I did:
