    Installing a 3.5" HDD in a 5.25" bay....

    Help! I've run out of 3.5" bays.... and I have plenty of 5.25" bays.... is there someplace that sells brackets and faceplates for say putting a 250MB Zip drive (a 3.5" drive) in a 5.25" bay?

    ya, they are fairly common, and your local computer store should have them.

    yes they are (or were) very common, and if that fails, try the saviour of the DIY computer person---the bent PCI slot blanking plate! you'd be surprised what can be done with a bent backing plate (or in this case, 2)!
