    Ive got a case for a 2.5" hard drive all it needs is a hard drive, would it be worth buying just a 2.5" hard drive or would it be more sense in buying a full set i guess youd call it
    And i was hoping on spending under $100AUD

    If it is no rush to get a hard drive for it, I would personaly just keep watching for a good sale somewhere on 2.5inch hd's. I am in the same boat. I have a 2.5 case with just an old 4gig in it. I want to upgrade it, just waiting for a good sale on a drive.

    It actualy was the only extra 2.5inch hd i had that actualy fit. I tried an old 2gig and even a 800mb, but they were all just slightly too tall. The 4gig im using is an old ibm i believe.
