Title: Hard Drive in the old DSM 520
Post by: Matt736367 on January 15, 2013, 11:19:28 PM
Hello, decided to play about with my old 520 last week, and I put a hard drive in it.

I soldered an few arrays of tiny-tiny resistors in it and used an old connector and it sort of works :)

I had to recompile the kernel using the OLD source code, which is missing a lot.  But please bear in mind only the Hard Drive and the Ethernet Port work! (not even the leds light up), this really is not useful, but I thought I'll post it here in case someone might play about with it.  Maybe in the future I'll put more effort into it (but I have a lot to learn)
