I noticed my old drive was a Seagate Baracuda also. Eek... I really I hope I don't blow this one too. I'm gonna see if I can find some other information before I run it though if I don't hear anything here. Too risky for my money.

Pull the old drives out and take the board off of them. I had a seagate cheetah smoke on me a few weeks ago when i was wiping them. Something in the molex shorted out and you could follow the trail of burned metal on the board all the way up to the spot that fried.
