Pic related was probably the best $10 I ever spent on my computer. It was super fucking useful. Current case doesn't have 5.25" bays though so I gave it to a friend.

Why not a lighter too?

Is that an ashtray or a cup holder?

Both, depends on what you use it for

>>52959795
Fuck yeah.
>>
>>52959795
can you backup data on those?
>>
>>52959703
Actually, that's kinda a good idea...
>>
>>52960911
Probably, but a CD would hold like 7 times the data.
>>
>>52960176
Thats pretty neat!
>>
I think there's a quad slot hotswap 2.5 bay out there. I've been considering building an itx backup rig using one.
>>
>>52960532
can you swap them?
>>
>>52959703
tape drive
4x2.5" hotswap
optical drive
>>
>>52960997
Way more than that, surely... A data cassette tape can only hold 660 kb on each side, I remember those on commodore 64. That is about 1.3 mb per cassette. A CD can hold way more than 7 times that.

My case came with 4 of them.

1 CD/DVD/BluRay reader/burner
2 hot swap HDD
1 fan controller
>>
I bought one of those.

I always knew you shouldn't use sata spliters/extenders as chinese quality control is completely shit and it's not uncomon to burn drives with missaligned pins shortcircuiting the HD's board.

Yet I completely failed to realize the same level of shitty chinese quality controle would be used on one of those shit drive bays and when I put one of my hard drives in there, it fried its board.

So, don't buy one of this fuckers unless is from a respectable company. Unfortunately on my country we have no such option.

icydock is a bad brand?

Cause smoking is nasty

>>52962458
It wasn't this model, it was a generic chinese moodel, this was the first "hd 5.2 dock" image I found on google images similar to my chinese one.
>>
>>52960176
I've always wanted one of these. Sadly they don't make them anymore.

He got a new case which didn't have a 5.25" bay, so he gave it to a friend.

I remember seeing one of those virtual sex controlers form a japanese company that was actually double 5.25 drive bay like 10 yeras ago, Couldn't find it so here a modern counterpart.
>>
>>52961839
He means you can use it as either one. Fits a cup, holds ash just fine too.
>>
>>52959795
Holy shit I was just looking for one of these, thanks man.

It almost certainly takes very little (relative) effort to make one of these
http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en/battery-products/cigarette-lighter-assemblies/393792?k=cigarette
Digikey has assloads of cigarette lighters for sale.

So theoretically all you need to do is get a cigarette lighter assembly, a MOLEX cable, and connect it to the 12V rail.
Get drilling fgt.

Isn't tape backup the most reliable one?
>>
>>52959703
nothing would be better than that

>I always knew you shouldn't use sata spliters/extenders as chinese quality control is completely shit and it's not uncomon to burn drives with missaligned pins shortcircuiting the HD's board.

I just switched over my 4 hard drives in my computer from from direct PSU SATA power cables to a couple of LP4 molex to SATA splitters.

Am I fucked? If it works, am I fine? Seems to be working fine right now.
>>
>>52964092
i have programs my dad wrote on tape over 30 years ago so i say its pretty reliable.

>tfw no onahole mount

>>52964618
The only thing that beats tape in longevity is MDisc but the cost per gigabyte is lower with tape.

MUH DICK!

>>52959881
that's what optical drives are for
>>
>>52965045
what will happen to you if you are in the same room as an automated tape library (opened) for several minutes?
>>
>>52960176
Have one, just not using it because all I was using it for was the DC power. I wouldn't bother with doing that though because the plug itself is a tad bit big in diameter and not the standard automotive size.

There are other uses for a 5.25" bay besides a 5.25" floppy drive?
