I currently own a HP a250n with a 120 gig hdd in it. There was a slot for another hdd in the same area as the first, so i stuck a 160 in there. im am now in need of another hdd. i was wondering what I should do. I dont want to take the hdd out and get a bigger one, because then I'll have no use for the smaller one. There isn't another slot for a 3rd, and there isnt much room in the computer itself. There is another IDE cable but I would need to get another (wide cable with multiple wire, cant remember the name) which I know are sold someplace. I was thinknig maybe buy a plastic casing and put the hdd in their. and just cut a hole thru the computer casing to feed the wires through and somehow connect the encased hdd to to the side of the computer tower. I don't know, any suggestions would be appreciated. And also, I don't want to get an external hdd. They are too slow and run more expensive.
