Hard drive in optical disk bay

  PaulCrane 08:55 17 Apr 2008

Does anyopne know if it's possible to buy an adaptor to fit a 3.5" hard drive into an optical drive bay in my PC tower case?

I want to add a shiny new 1TB drive to fill up with video but the two hard drive bays are already occupied. I'd rather not take one of them out and I'd prefer the new drive be mounted internally, rather than attached via USB. I'm not after a removable caddy or anything like that, just something that will allow me to securely fit the drive.

There's no problem with having enough SATA sockets in the motherboard or power connectors, it's just the mounting problem.

Any thoughts?
