So I have a 2011 iMac that has a 500 GB. Hard drive inside. I could not buy a new computer but I bought a 2 TB. external hard drive that I connected using firewire, since it is almost as fast as firewire.
What I wanted to do is to have it act as an internal hard drive, automatically storing any new downloads to it. I thought I could do this because an iMac has two different SATA ports, but only one is occupied by the 500 GB. hard drive. Is there any way I can root the hard drive from the firewire port to make it act as if it was internal, an/or connected to the second SATA port?
