i was thinking of using a 20g internal hd as a external usb hd so i can use it like a very large flash pen so i can transfer downloads from my partners pc to my pcs, was thinking of a usb to usb data cable but want something portable.
so could i get a hd case with usb out lead so i can put a internal hd in and use as a portable hd.
had a look on ebay and they come with a power supply and usb2 lead for around £10.so i think i will have one coz have got about 6 hard drives lying around doing nothing so will try and save data and drivers frommy 4 other pcs onto one of the drives and the others just as storage for downloads etc.
shauny36: As you say, the cable is much easyer to use, but you did say that you had other drives hanging around unused so the "Easy IDE" could make them useful as you can use them without installing them.
I have two drives sitting in a draw, (one is only six gig) so I use one of them as an "External" drive to store all my "Downloaded Software" and store other importatnt data on so I have a backup of it all.
Maybe you could even go for both choices.
