Just a small update. From what I gather, if an HP customer has a problem with RAM and its need to be reseated/replaced HP calls in the comptuer for repair since its bloody tough to access RAM modules. :)

i heard tht some unknown cabinet makers will introduce tht technique
is tht true??????????
also i guess if HDD is inserted horizontally(not vertically) like CD in the CD rom spaces in cabinet..
I dont think there wont be any problem in removing ram then....
Only thing is tht loading mechanism...
Its very hard to do tht...

Hey.... that is... just a normal external HDD.The only thin different about this is that the USB connector is inside the cabinet and the other connector is in the body of the drive so when u push the drive in,there is a connection and it works like a normal HDD.
\]

Do u want 1??well....u do get ready made external HDD but I recommend u Make 1 on u r own...Yes...u can .....Get a new PATA HDD (IDE) of u r choice 40 gig/80 gig etc ....what....ever...Now get a external HDD cansing which will ship your HDD and will change the PATA interface to USB 2.0 and also give your external HDD a sleek look .......................Well I bought 1 for Rs 400...........................Just connect the IDE cable to the cable in the casing...... make sure there is driver CD with the casing------------------------------------If your mobo supports firewire then u get a firewire case.......... Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!

@samrulez
Thnx for ur efforts.....
but here we r discussing onloading mechanism.....
even i was knowing wht u told......
but here we r behind to crack the loading mechanism of HP....
this mechanism is 'Push to work ' type....
also introducing a PATA over here will be hecic....
Since the IDE cable n power supply both will have to be connected n ejected with the push of button....
Hope ur clear with my idesa n only Usb HDD will be suitable over here
Anyways THNX for ur efforts

just thinking out of the box...
why dont u mount the drive into a loading mech built over the top of the cabinet. cut a small hole and pass thru the power/usb cables.
this will be easier to construct too

No u can make a external HDD with a 2.5" Hdd.In that u don't need any power cables it is powered by the USB port...But still making push michanism is a little tough....U have to allign the sockets very carefully .......And has a disadvantage.>>>>>>u cannot use it with ur frenz computers.......Its better to have a simple USB connector to transfer DATA from 1 comp 2 another...

here is the image of my idea........

i am not sure about the insides as i dont know what usb drives looklike .. if u can post a few images of the drive then i can try and design the insides...

it took me 1/2 an hour to designthis in mspaint...my fav alternate for 3d max
