    i cant find thnis hardrive slot. the only thing tht i found remotely close to it was under my cd thing with logos on it and inmn not sure tht is the right thing. i didnt try opening it or anything. i have 89 gigs on my hardrive but i just wanted to see how to do it. i have had mine for a while. could it be tht mine doesnt have a removable harddrive because its older?

    I've accidentally touched the mobo of a hard drive, and it still worked. But yeah, too much static and boom goes harddrive.

    No, hard drive space is not memory. Memory is RAM, basically what PS3s, Xboxes and computers use to think.
