    Replacing the HD in my external Buslink FW HD

    I have a 40GB Buslink external drive. It's been working great, expecially since upgrading to XP. I know it's a 3.5" drive, and I was wondering if anyone has replaced the internal HD with a larger drive. I know there's a PCB in there since I once opened the case, but I don't know if this PCB will only allow a 40GB of that type in there. I'd love to replace it with a 120GB WD drive.
    Also, I know it's a 5400 rpm drive....would installing a 7200 rpm drive work also??? I'd buy a new Buslink with a larger drive, but it's a lot cheaper to buy the bare drive and intall it myself.

    I think I answered my own question. I took out the 40 GB drive and put in a 13GB drive I had laying around.....worked great. Probalby better than the Samsung drive that was in there. I also tested a smaller 4GB drive, and that worked fine. I'll install my new 120GB WD drive tomorrow....hopefully it'll work too.

    120GB worked. Has to be Fat32 since NTFS won't work.

    sounds good, nice litle upgrade that

    obviously your warranty is now pretty gone
    trout are freshwater fish and have underwater weapons
    trout are very valuable and immensely powerful
    keep away from the trout
