You can have an IDE drive up to at least 80 GB with the latest OS. It's easy to make a substitute to the IDE kit (a cable).

The SCSI drive can be 18 GB max. If you use a larger one, it'll be recognized as 18 GB only.

thank you so much for the advice sir, but will any ide hard drive do? i haven't opened the emu so far, a bit hesitant to do so but is it having ide connection port and all? is it just as easy as pluging it in and formatting?

The IDE kit from E-mu is just an ATA cable and another for the powering. On the drive itself, any IDE will do, but there must be a limit so investing into a 500 GB drive could be stupid…The OS/hardware limit is 138 GB as it's a common issue one due to controller limitations in computers a long time ago. Now the 80 GB is working, it's been told on the E-mu 5000 mailing list and I found another user talking about a 120 GB so it's covered.

The opening is easy, I've never done it on a E4XT but it should be similar, a few screws away and it's opened. There's the official manual of the official cable

Note that there's been a reported working IDE hard drive of 160 GB recognized as 130 GB lately. smile.gif
