Just install it inside your box. HDD will come with Sata Cable and plug into motherboard. Will be a lot quicker than USB and then you can keep your other HDD as well :thumbsup:

If its Esata then its almost certainly Sata inside so should be no problem ,the question is how hard is it to dismantle ?.

i have checked the d2 quadra drive's specifications and it doesnt mention anywhere if its a sata drive!
if its not sata then it wouldnt work would it?

i found this video on youtube it shows how to take the d2 quadra apart. i've never changed a HD before. do u think its easy to change it?

With the drives plugges in go to my computer,
Right click on the drives and select properties
click on hardware and the drives will be there,
this tells you the exact drive that is in the enclosure
if you google the drives you will be able to find out what exact spec they are,

i called lacie and was told that although the d2 was a sata drive one the chip inside mine(olders d2 model) only supported up to 1tb drives..
thanks anyway

btw, how much would it cost me to get a HD case with esata and usb conection?
