So it looks like I'll have to pop out the dvdrw drive correct? And after I install the new drive it will just show itself as another drive in My Computer correct? I guess I can order a dirve from new egg or the like, and what type do I need to specify? A seagate 200 gb sounds "nice". My main reason for wanting a second drive is to use with a Digidesign Pro Tools System, where they recommend a second drive.

All of your assumptions are correct. Make sure to check out www.zipzoomfly.com as well...

 

Happy shopping...

Re: T61 Hard Drive

Unfortunately the link above to purchase an "ultrabay slim SATA hard drive adapter" now says the product is unavailable. Is it still possible to add a second hard drive to a T61 that was purchased in 2007? I want to install unix on the drive and boot from it, is that possible?
