Sorry that you never received a reply to your OP within 3 minutes and felt the need to bump your topic Jstampohar
You can use either a USB docking station like the one here or a USB adapter kit such as the one here both are only examples and I am in no way promoting either brand, both are convenient tools to have as it means that you can have multiple drives that you can connect and disconnect as and when required.

personally i second the docking station option (if it's sata drives your working with, other wise your going to need the adaptor kit for ide drives), have one myself that has saved me loads of time when working with pc's.
i'd also recommend getting one with a usb3 connection for best transfer speeds, even if you currently only have usb2 connections on your hardware, also get one that works with larger drives over 2TB if possible.
mine is similar to this but different brand and much older, only has usb 2 and esata connections and think but not 100% sure will only work with drives upto 1TB :- http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817707323

never checked the hard drive specs or the link specs,
must admit i do like the device options of that all in one docking station you linked to, never seen one with so many different device connections, pity it can't handle the larger drives and is not usb3 capable, does have esata tho so that's good.
transfer speeds are important to me, docking stations are great time savers tho so i'd definitely recommend one to anyone.
