External HDD

I am looking to buy an 2.5" external HDD but not sure what to go for.

I have been watching on ebay and noticed you can buy empty boxes and wondered if any 2.5" disc can be fitted into these cases.

Hi, yes you can get an adapter to fit a 2.5 inch diskdrive into a 5'5 inch bay. Have a look at Maplins.

I would prefer a 2.5" case for the disk powered from the USB.

What would be the best interface. IDE or ATA??
