Exactly what problems are you having installing the drive?

Take the hdd cage out
Put the hdd in the cage and put screws in
Put the cage back in the case

Antec has since abandoned this line and refused to make it any better, instead re-hashing their 300,900, and 1200 cases that are complete and total crap.
Quoted for the truth.

The only innovative line of Antec cases that have come out is the Performance One series, all other Antec's are total crap, ugly and have shoddy built quality that falls apart after a month.

Never mind, friends at VDR helped me see what I couldn't see. Remove drive cages through front of case, install harddrive, reinstall cage. Sometimes, my brain just doesn't see what manuals are telling me. I made this build harder by not reading the manual more closely.

Thanks anyway. Problem solved.

ThePunisher, I couldn't see the cages. I expected to see an object sticking out a bit from the whole line of drive bays. I now understand why the big thumb screws were there. Removed four of those and slid the cage out the front, put harddrive in using the big screws supplied, put cage back in, screw in the big thumb screws.
