So, I've got my old laptop and recently the screen has gone bad.
Instead of throwing it out, I thought that I could make it into a nice HTPC.
I am planning on making a nice simple case that will keep it cool and just hook it up to a TV.
But the biggest problem I have is storage.
I want to use a relatively cheap 1TB HDD to store movies music etc. But any 2.5in drives that size are very expensive and very slow.
So i wanna know, is there any way to hook a 3.5in drive to a 2.5in port. (I know that 2.5in drive bays only provide 5V not 12V needed for 3.5in)
I want to avoid using and external enclosure that requires 2 power sources.
Any Ideas? :?
