here is my trusty 4gb mini hard drive, picked it up about a year ago, 60$ after a MIR.
but its been through a lot and the USB connector would only work half the time, it was time to take it apart and give it a new case.
luckily the USB connector is an easy fix, something was just loose.
and here it is opened up
and the guts taken out. yes, this is all there is to it, i'm keeping the rubber on the hard drive to be safe
and a quick test to make sure it works (which it does)
still no ideas on where to put this drive...but they should come soon
