Has anyone here any experience with connecting a second hard disk to a laptop via the optical drive bay? I am interested in doing this with a Dell Latitude D520 and an HP DV6000 laptop.
Okay, I'll explain why. USB drives are external and require extra 'stuff' to be connected and carried about. Also, compared to an internal PATA or SATA connection, USB is slow.Any reason you don't want to get a usb external drive?
