Q: Hello this is my first question here. I have an old sony
vaio and i was wondering if i can replace the optical drive with a hard drive. The secondary ide slot fits and i do not need the second optical drive. What issues will i have if this is even possible. Tried to find an answer on the net but they said somthing about the cd drive making the hard drive slower. Just curious for a definitive professional answer. Thank you
