Hi All, I have an old 60Gb HD from an old set up that I would like to use for a backup of my music collection. I have had a look on ebay as see that you can get an enclosure that will allow you to use an internal hard drive as an external one. The HD I have says on it that it is 60GB ATA. Is this IDE or something different? Idon't want to waste my money on something that is not going to work. Any help or alternative recommendations appreciated.
Yes - The IDE interface is officially the AT Attachment (ATA) specification, and "IDE drives" and "ATA drives" are synonymous. The name came from the IBM PC/AT, which was the first PC to use the drives.
