i’m in the process of some serious media center modding and have a potential problem.
i’m basically stuck with having to mount my 250gb ide drive upside down. while it seems to operate okay now, is this dumb in the long term?
also, the ide cable running from the mobo had two connections (one for dvd drive / one for hard drive). because i’m tight for space and dont need a dvd drive, i cut one off and taped the ‘live wires’. could this potentially damage my drive too?
thanks for any advice.
