    I have a quantum fireball st and was wandering if I could use it in my new computer. I want to retreive some data off it. It says "power required 5/12v 650/720mA" It also says 3240AT, my new machine is atx power so will it work with this or not?
    Thanks for your replies

    Crylynx :p

    As long as the power connector fits, it should work. The power connectors have 4 holes, and I'm pretty sure that they're all the same.

    You shouldn't have a problem using the fireball.

    If you're putting it on the same cable as the HD in the new system, make sure you set the new HD to master and the fireball to slave.

    The new HD should be connected to the end connector. The Quantum fireball to the middle connector.
