Seems like an alright use of a DS case but it could be summed up in the line: - Buy a case for your DS and put the external hard drive inside it.

Definitely a smart move, too many people carry them about in their bags then wonder why it's not working...

Sooo.... You're basically peddling aftermarket DS cases? Are you the guy who sells these things, or are you just getting a commission?

I don't see a link anywhere in the Instructable for where to actually buy these, so he probably doesn't sell them. I don't think he meant to advertise or anything, but yah, just saying buy this and put this other thing inside of it isn't much of an Instructable.
