well, I'm not sure.... I dont have any computer screens to go with the towers.... i just wanna know how i can maybe use the hard drives for more storage... they've been wiped.... i mean i know i can use the hard drives as externals i'm just not sure what i need to do...
 
Yes; sorry.

"If you want them in a separate tower (non-external), they still need to be attached to a computer. Turn it on, let it work and you can remote into it and control it with your [strike]desktop[/strike] laptop."

You can also run them as a NAS and run your music on your laptop just like the drives were usb external drives. Freenas is a decent free NAS opeating system.

Also remember all computers & equipment breaks so think about how you will backup all your music so when it happens to you it wont be a total disaster.
