I would like to add a second internal hard drive and although i have located space below the CD/DVD drive the space is too wide to secure the hard drive. Is there something like a tray for example that i could secure the hard drive too and which would fit snugly into the space below the CD/DVD drive? Hope you can understand my garbbled explantion lol. Thanks

Certainly, there are adapter brackets, or a tray, e.g.:

It is an HP Media Center PC now used solely to run Linux OS's. But i think the link above for a 3.5 to 5.25 brackets/tray seems to be spot on. Thanks for the replies both.
