- Mar 13, 20091) I do not know what kind of hard drive you have - it could be an IDE with a 4 pin power and 40 pin cable.
if so the yellow cable should be 12v to the black cable - both black cables should be ground - the red cable should be 5 volts.
If the red is 12 and the yellow is 5 I read my book wrong.
Are you windows or linux the box/drive is linux
Evaluate your needs first - you can get a lan based NAS (up to 3 TB) with raid options
a dns-321 with a 500 gig hard drive is $205
it is under $400.00 with 2 1.5TB drives.
(((tiger direct) just a customer))
But if your needs are met with the 250 - good luck
I think you can also replace the drive with a larger size.
I would run spin rite on the drive to check for errors before a reformat.
If you are close to Michigan I would be able to help.
