SNES External Hard Drive




Introduction: SNES External Hard Drive

About: I am a software engineer, addicted to props

Okay, today I will show you how to turn your SNES deffective game into an external hard drive.

Material :

  • SNES Game (I chose Sim city but switch the sticker with Mario World ;) )
  • Hard Drive (2.5'')
  • Sata to mini-usb adapter (few dollars on ebay)

Step 1: Adapt the Cassette

First, you should remove the screws that you can see at each corners.

Thereafter you have to remove everything inside and flatten the "walls" (because otherwise the hard drive does not fit)

Step 2: Hole for USB

Thereafter, cut the edge to be able to connect the cable (done with scissors). After this step, we can see that the hard drive fits perfectly with the adapter. Replace the screw like it was at the begininng.

Step 3: Finish Result

An easy DIY project for everyone for cheap. It cost me nothing. Hope you enjoyed it, any comment is welcome.
