I don't think you're capable of building a hard drive, sorry son. There's a reason we buy them.

I don't think he means to literally build the hard drive itself. I believe places like ebay sell external hard drive cases where they have the USB ports and everything. You just need to go and buy a hard drive to attach into it.
