I need help mounting my hdd's in a hdd cage... I bought my computer from a company, prebuilt so I never learned how to mount a hdd... Here's what it looks like:

the black thing should face towards the back oh the case and the hd's should just slide right in. im not sure tho thats what it looks like to me. why don't you try to figure it out?(not being mean but the only way your going to learn is to do it yourself)



k i googled the case and this is how its suppose to be

Sorry if I've mislead you, but my sig rig's case (ended up returning both cases) is lying... I have this funky case (here's a link to it *not official site though...*)

I've been trying to figure it out, but it just doesn't make any sense any way I put the hard drive in.... I'm pretty sure the hdd's go in sideways though....

I wish it were as easy as that, but if you look at my pictures then you should see that there is no place to screw in the hard drives...

if there is no place to screw them in it's probably a "tool less" case. meaning it should just slide right in and lock in with those black things...lol

POOF!
I recommend using an oxy-acetylene torch and some solder to weld the HD to the bracket thing.
