    I did, it was huge!, I took it to bits to see how it worked :-)
    I was only 15 though.

    It was about 4 inches thick!

    i took several of them appart wen i was around that age too XD
    them things were big buggers XD and decided to never work again if u removed them from the pc or sumin.. bit stupid but what the hey XD

    Hmm i made a usb hdd out of a 40 mb hdd (using pendrives) my friend was amazed when it was 64 gbs

    ive gotta quantum fireball ex 3gb, conner cfs1275a all from a Digitek computer running win95& an intel p5400, and I use both of them for eboostr. but theyre too slow... 1333kb/s for the conner, and 3426kb/s for the other one...

    Hmm...I bet you could install MicroXP on it...

    In the days of those drives, Windows 3.1 didn't take up much space :P Nor where there movies, music or anything else to be placed on the drives... Oh... the days of DOS, and WIN 3.1... simpler times... lol

    well i don't use most of those HDD' no need for an os :P

    if you used it as a secondary drive

    I have a 3 gig wd caviar 33100 and a 4 gig hdd oh and also got some cd's that are only like 700mb lol

    Caviar 33100?! Wow, Those where one of the best of their kind, They still sell for a good 50 bucks on ebay!

    Not the 650mb ones... :P

    Strange, I've only seen 700MB ones, maybe you're talking about the image on the disc?

    The original CD-Rs were 650MB (72Min I think), 700MB (80Min) came a little later afterwards... :)

    one of the grat things for that is they can b great for back-ups on old computer's, like my dads old computer.
