Driverless support in Windows.

is it worth shelling out on this or buying an actual replacement case for my 3.5" hard drive? (case power thingie is damaged, hence the need for a new case to connect to p.c)
#4
Is this USB powered or does it come with a plug?
#5
No they have a seperate power supply
#6

Works fine in linux! :thumbsup:

This is a good deal, however for £4.28 more, you can get an Icy Box Dock delivered, which has esata and tips the balance for me (just ordered one). Doesn't have a card reader or usb hub like this. I believe it supports linux as I found the chipset in a startech dock which claimed linux support.

Edit: The forum seems to have cut off the "cclonline" bit of my link, is the word ccl online blasphemy? I did notice the vouchers section mentioned they're banned for self-promoting..

Looks unbranded, only 28p more for Icy Box brand 8-). Does have a there year warranty however, icy is 2 years iirc.
#12

If you want to connect the same external drive frequently then get it a case, this sort of thing is more for testing drives or copying data off of internal ones out of broken computers..
#14

This one looks good to me, good find thank you
#15
I had one delivered today,i got my old hard drives ready to connect and restore some old files and photos but the connection is pata/ide on my hard drives not sata. Does anybody know if there is naything i can do to connect the hard drives to this ?

:thumbsup: thanks so much for taking notice of my question- i'm gonna find a case and give this deal a miss. repped for your time, cheers m'dears:thumbsup:

I've seen an IDE version of this floating around on here before. Will be useful for those of you who have older IDE hard drives.
[mod]#18
well done- got mine sitting here now- excellent buy-heat added
#19
still got a few ide drives hanging around. would be nice to have one that did both ide and sata...
#20
got mine from Play. Works great but the power connector to the unit is a bit wobbly - not sure if it's just mine.

[FONT=Verdana]Agree, very handy for helping people out with recovering their data - seen it happen quite a lot!!! ;-)

anyone know if it would work on a PS3 to allow you to put films or music on?
#23
£17.99 here. What voucher code did you use? Ones Ive tried dont work
#24
Does anyone else who has got one find the power button does nothing at all? Mine is always on once power is connected.

To the fella with an IDE drive, there are SATA to IDE converters, but they may not work properly with this. Better to find an IDE model (I use an old external HDD that I have butchered)

Power supply wise this will work as a card reader and power many 2.5" drives with just the USB lead. USB doesn't provide enough power for anything bigger though (same reason that bus powered external hard disks are only ever 2.5" drives).

On the PS3 question, the PS3 will recognise any drive formated as FAT connected to this and you can share files this way. Windows will work with FAT32 max which is limited to a 32GB partition and 4GB files. Your PC will not recognise your PS3 hard disk connected to this as the format is not compatible.

Oh and any Linux, Windows or OSX from the past 10 years should recognise this with no drivers.
#25
Ordered thanks.
#26
What voucher are you using to get the pound off ??
#27
wii usb loader, ps3 and xbox 360 wont recognise your hdd, i have tried them, you will need to get an enclosure with a hdd formatted to fat32. But for general backup and recovery tasks using a windows xp/vista or 7 pc this is ideal, well worth the money.

Agreed, transfered around 700Gb using a similar USB2 dock recently - ran for over 24 hours:-(
#29
Search ebay for "ide sata to usb" for various gadgets priced from £3 to £9 connecting SATA/eSATA and/or IDE devices to your USB port.
#30
got one of these in my office. They are amazing! no real wire mash up as you get with standard hd readers. USB ports are very nice to have. Works a treat, highly recommend it.:santa:

If you need one with both sata and ide for 2.5" and 3.5" drives - free shipping with hexus forum deal too. I've ordered one for my shop so will see if it's any good - hopefully more robust than the cables.
