    Old Fat hard drives

    Anyone ever done anything with old fat hard drives. Like the ones that are 3 or 4 inches thick by about 5 inchs long or so? I've managed to save a couple from work. I assume they still function was thinking of doing a like window mod for them and using them for like show.

    Not sure yet but just kicking some ideas around for them.

    Yea they are Quantums, they may very well be the big foot version. Thought of hacking the cover off and putting a acrylic cover on thats clear and just powering them.

    Thats really awsome idea. Although i don't understand how they get the light from the center of the spindle to the to move around like that. I did notice the lights on the side. All very interesting.
