DIY USB

DIY USB

Using a dead Hard Drive, a 4 port USB hub, and a few Flash Drives, we will kill some time and get a few laughs from anyone seeing you use this
Any Hard Drive should do
Take the Hard Drive apart…
Make sure your USB hub will fit, either with the plastic case on, or not… For this purpose, I removed the plastic case. placed the “nekkid” USB hub into the area where the platter used to be. only placing this temporarily, if I was going to keep this mod permanent, I would glue the hub in either using epoxy or hot glue if this was going to be used permanently, I would coat the circuit board with epoxy, just like I do with Flash Drives Now add your Flash Drives, you may have to remove the casing for some to fit well Replace the cover to the Hard Drive, and plug in! Now you will have a “new” Flash Drive that will be sure to get some comments
