    argh. seriously bad hdd idea. if it bounced around the platters will be going crazy due to gyroscopic forces and thats even if it doenst hit the metal with a thud.

    you need to get some real strong tesnsion on those bands and then provide some damping - eg some NON-CONDUCTIVE (ie not antistatic) foam blocks postioned under the edges. do not put foam along the whole top or bottom though as it may cause overheating.
