UDE-235   IDE Hard Drive Enclosure   EACH $ 69.00   3 in stock   Add to Cart

The USB External Hard Drive Enclosure will take a low-cost desktop hard drive and transform it into a portable external hard drive, ready for travel and transfer as a standard USB Mass Storage Device.

Functionally, this product is identical to any off-the-shelf external hard drive, except that you can provide your own drive of the size, brand, and features that you desire. It's cheaper, it's more flexible, and it gets you exactly what you want from your drive.

This sleek aluminum enclosure mounts any standard 3.5" hard drive, and presents itself as a high-speed USB 2.0 hard drive on any modern computer. The unit is powered by an external DC power adaptor and includes a 4-pin molex connector to power the drive.

This product can be used to switch hard drives without restarting your computer. Supported methods are suspending the computer, removing the USB device, or disabling the USB device. When the computer or USB device is resumed, it will read and initialize the new drive.

NOTE: This device only works with a single hard drive, which must be set to "Master" or "Single Drive", whichever applies to your hard drive. It will not work with a "Slaved" hard drive.
