Thanks for that, it looks like ebay is the way to go. Shame i need a whole new enclosure, the original was quite nice.

You don't. You can use an adapter cable. But an enclosure helps protect the drive from physical damage from getting bumped and banged about.

Problem!
Ive been looking on ebay, and some of the enclosure say that it is up to 160gb. I need 320gb. Also my hard drive is thicker than 10mm, it is approx 13mm so it will not fit in most of those that i have seen, which say older models, >10mm will not fit.
Anyone know where to find the correct size? Im finding it very difficult

Thanks
