    I replaced the original hard drive with a 240GB SSD and want to swap out the optical drive for a 2TB HDD and wondering if that is any more difficult than what I already did and what do I need to buy to mount an HDD in that spot? Thanks in advance!

    Hmm, that shows them putting the SSD drive in the place of the optical drive but that is PATA interface and really slow. I am surprised they didn't put the SSD on the SATA interface and the HDD on the PATA interface.
