View Full Version : external hard drive to internal =S
guys need some help please
i have an external hard drive with my laptop
but since im waiting for my new gaming beast (preproduction stage)
i want to use the external drive as an internal drive
is this possible
its a seagate expansions 1tb
the problem is the connection and all that stuff and also im afraid of losing the stuff i have in it
Nope, you're gona need serious knowledge with the wires to be able to do that lol. Plus usually external drives are usb and the connection from internals are sata. unless depending how big the external drive is, you could take its shell off an somehow safely pop it in the pc with the usb cable looped through the back of a watercooling hole and into the back usb ports. same goes for the power supply...well the power supply goes into the mains and not pc :p
my fault, i didnt explain my self right
i have knowledge with cables, wires and whatever inside the pc =P
just want to know if anyone knows the type of connection of that specific hard drive...
if inside there is a Sata or ide is fine
will do to connect internally
plus that external hard drive is a 7200 rpm edition so shouldnt be any slow (buffer size is **** tho)
well that would still normally be no, as your external 1tb seagate and uses a usb connection right? internal drives use sata cables which are these:
You cant really connect an external drive since they were built to be external usually.
which model/series seagate are you using?
