Hi all,

I am about to install a new 160 GB drive in my Qube. I had only opened 
the thing once before to install memory, but this time I took the 
existing drive out for my 3.0 experiment (see earlier post about the 
flaky 2.0 GB disk).

To my surprise, the default Seagate drive has a soft black plastic 
"thing" wrapped around it. I am not entirely sure what the purpose of 
this thing is, but my question is this: Should I peel that "thing" off 
and try to "fit it" over the new drive?

Is this supposed to protect against potential shorts? Will it "melt" 
with a bigger (and presumably hotter) disk?

Any clues? Anyone? :-)
