Has anyone seen my stapler?

Well we needed to swap out a CD drive for a DVD one. Hmm, The new DVD is SATA and the previous CD was IDE, dilemma....


Idea! I have an extra SATA cable we can use...

Great. Hmm....

This power supply doesn't have another connection for SATA power. Only for addition Hard drive daisy chained on to exiting cable. Ghetto fabulous time?

Move existing hard drive above new DVD and daisy chain the power that way. See below for ghetto rig.

Power set...
Stapler? Really?
Yes, really....

Only thing we could find to keep Hard drive wedge in there. There was nothing to attach the HD to, could only rest on top DVD.
And that's how you swap out an IDE cd-rom drive for a DVD-ROM SATA Drive.

And knowing is half the battle.
