I brought it from goodwill used no HD’s.
My soninlaw said I need ide to sata adapters. I came on here to see if he is right. The manual states sata and something else. I didn’t believe him. I just brought 2 80 gab HD’s from them waiting for delivery. I guess I’ll just try them when they come in.
I want to thank you sir for your reply’s and time.
Thank you
