basically my question is, can i unplug a cd rom drive and put a hard drive there?
All i want to do is transfer some files from my hard drive onto my firends computer. he already has two hard drives installed and refuses to let me take out one temporarily. (i dont want to argue with him so please don't tell me not to try to convince him that its safe, i already tried).
since this will only be temporarily i dont need worry worry about mounting it properly or heat. will it work as long as I set it the jumper to secondary (assuming the other cd drive is primary)? are there any options that i need to change in the bios?
btw, there about 50 gigs of stuff i want to transfer. i considered taking my computer and using a crossover cable but then i realized how lazy i was.
