:) Hello,
Have a couple internal HD's and I'm in need of an external. One is a few years old and the other is practically new. Is there a way to somehow use one of them as external? They are both WD if that matters. Reason being was hopeing to have mobility as an option to be able to backup data on my home network. I realize that I could piggy back them on my main computer, but I'd rather NOT configure my system that way.

Gman :)

you would want something like this. You'd have to find the appropriate type... ( 2.5 or 3.5 and ide/sata)
