  • Want: Mounting adapter to fit 3.5" device in a 5" bay

    I know they come for free with just about every retail HDD, but I've never kept them... Now I'm buying an OEM drive and I'm not sure they'll come with the drive. I need them to mount a USB2 front panel extension in my case (which only has one externally accessible 3.5 inch bay and it's designed for a floppy drive only).

    I'm willing to pay for shipping, but I was hoping someone would be willing to just pay it forward and I'll try to hook up the next person that needs something...

    Thanks in advance!

    Merry Christmas.... send me your address.........

    you want 2 seperate (one on each side) or one solid (single piece the entire device fits inside)?

    I have both, but the 5.25 cover with the 3.5 cutout I cannot help with....... are you cutting that from scratch?

      I may have one with a cutout adaptor. I will have to check.

        Thanks!

        I think I'd better go with the two piece adapter, just to insure that it fits... I was going to cut a hole in the middle of the large cover so it'll fit... (good thing I'm not too big on cosmetics, because I'm sure it's gonna be ugly...)

        IM sent.

            Hmmm, well, I think DdogG may have already sent me the adapter. And I'm really not picky about the appearance... But I suppose airflow is a concern, so the tighter the fit, the better...

            If you're not gonna use it for anything, I sure wouldn't mind having the cutout. And if DdogG hasn't shipped yet, then it would be easier/cheaper if I got the adapter from you, as well...

            I'll send you my address via PM.

                Well, I thank you very much for your offer, but if you haven't sent it, I'd just as soon take Quarath up on his offer.
