IDE/ATA- have I got it right?????

  jack 13:52 06 Aug 2004

In my quest to get an external HDD sorted I havegotmyself a Caddy and put in an old
2gb IDe drive from the junk box to see whats what - it worked fine
Now to buy the proper drive - in a search and advice from this forum I have ordered a Barracuda
IDE/ATA 200gb from Komplett.

But did I do it right?
What is this ATA?
Will it run in my USB caddy?
Will I have to send it back?
quick quick before it is too late.

IDE and ATA are different names for the same hard-drive interface. You should have no problem.

YES it will run

PS you got it right in your title, IDE/ATA

ATA is only a extension to IDE interface

Having used caddies for some time I do hope your caddy has at least one but preferably two fans. A 200GB HDD gets pretty hot and needs good cooling in the tight confines of a caddy.
