Re: HELP! Jukebox Recorder 2.0: *PANIC* disk:NULL after HD upgrade

Hi Heinrich,

you can get a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter (maybe 5..10 EUR) in better computer shops.

Then connect the 2.5 disk to your "normal" PC provided there is a free IDE
connector/cable on your motherboard.

The BIOS should easily recognize your disk as well as the operating system
(whatever you use) and you shoudl be able to format.
