    I have a 40GB SATA drive that I just pulled from my windows machine. I already have two hard drives in my G5 and was wondering if there was a way to add another. It works perfectly fine. I'd hate to see it go to waste. If there isn't an internal way, what's the cheapest way to make it external?

    Thanks!

    You could always get something like this, which allows more drives to be put in the G5:

    Then again, at that price, you'd be better off to just go to somewhere like newegg.com and buy a 3.5" external enclosure. I recommend something like this, that matches the G5:

    They make a USB version, a FW 400 version, and a FW 800 version. I own one each of the first two, and they're great!
