    i finally got the guts to do it, so i started off by turnin my shower on HOT HOT HOT and letting the air humidify to help make it a dust free enviroment, next i unscrewed the top [frickin screws took me forever] then quickly and carefully i slid the HDD into a zip lock baggy and sealed the sucker off, i then cut the hole in the lid using some heave duty wire cutters (my dremel is on a boat headed toward london:waah: ) heh then i got this..

    from there i had used the last of my acrylic so i opted to use some rather flimsy plastic used in packaging (not the best choice, i know) as the window.

    plugged it back in..... and all is well :clap: :rock: :clap:

    tho it did scare me for a lil bit as the first time i plugged everythin in it froze on the IBM aptiva boot screen:worried:

    heres a short MPG of the spindle in action while defragmenting the disk :naughty: the crappy quality MPG doesnt do justice

    tell me what u guys think :rock:

    I noticed that with my one. What sizedrive is it. Mine is a whole 520meg.

    Oh and as for defraging - don't. It makes teh heads move around more.
