IDE/SATA to USB Adapter

I'm looking for an adapter to be able to plug a bare disk drive into a USB port without having to fit it into an enclosure. I found one at Maplin, but at £39.99 it seems a bit steep.

Anyone know of an alternative?

I bought one via http://www.aidmypc.co.uk/
they have a shop in central london, good service and friendly staff,
spend 8quid on a 2.5" IDE enclosure,
could ask them for the product you need,
maybe cheaper than maplin.

someone had one for sale over the last few weeks. not sure thread address and gotta pop and do some work but when I come back I'll have a look although I think it might be the same model as maplins.

it might be better to buy the enclosure and just keep the cover off as i do!

They're just a couple of quid from hong kong on a well known auction site but be careful when buying one, you need to decide whether you need a power adapter with it or not.

That's ok but only suitable for 2.5" laptop drives as it doesn't have a power adapter with it.

I misread one of the reviews and thought a power adaptor came with it, but someone later on says it doesn't, my mistake!

You just need to change the 3 pin Plug for the power supply. (u need to replace the power cable (bottom left in pic) same cable as your monitor or pc uses - i can send u one free if you don't have a spare)
