On my birthday recently, I was lucky enough to get an email telling me that I could have free next day delivery on my next order, as a birthday gift from Ebuyer. Just order something no promo code needed, it's already set up to happen on my account. It was, free delivery (next day) appeared automatically when I went to order.

How I laughed on the next page, where it said "next day delivery is not available in your area".

Pretty cool, remember it's SATA only though, wont work with your old IDE drives.

I got one from dealextreme that did sata and ide but it cost much more than this (same make though)
was ideal for me as it had usb and esata and a power button on the back and would expect this one to have the same

Cant they make one that does SATA and IDE at the same time?
#8
I had one of these from DX a while back - nice if you want a SATA hot swap dock, but in the computer

https://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.19704

Don't forget you need AHCI enabled in the BIOS, and the drivers in Windows beforehand.

Crikey1 I bought a double on ebay about 2 months ago for £19. Has a card reader (fast to) and two usb 2.0 slots.
Glad I did now.

Why would you want IDE these days ?

Op, you need to include postage costs in the overall price. £20.77 delivered.

yes look at the post above your first post
#13
no ESATA,cold......
#14
Jesus, picky, much?

£15 for a SATA 2.5/3.5" caddie which looks like it saves a lot of hassle. I currently use caddies which support everything but swapping cables around on the caddy (which is what I have to do on the ones I have) is a right pain.
banned#15
you can only get sata docking stations

ide drives are too complex with all the pins that if drives were pushed in and out all the time it would damge the interface

plus ide drives are not swappable like sata drives so not very good

we have 5 of these in work and they are excellent for what they do, this is not the cheapest price i have seen them for though and sumvision do a esata one (without the card reader and usb hub) or the new one has just been released which has a card reader, a usb hub and also has esata and usb so best of both worlds

Only for true hot swap otherwise(usb removal policy will apply) IDE emulation will work with this in that manner.


Edit you mean for the deal extreme thing:lol

Could someone kindly tell me what is needed to enable e-sata?I purchased an external enclosure which had esata and usb,I connected the esata cable to the enclosure and the other end to the esata backplate which I installed in my pc then I enabled AHCI but when I started the pc it just went on a continuous loop restarting the system but never starting up windows.Is there something im missing out? I did a search on google but it didnt really help much,I just wanted the esata for transfering files to my backup drive.
#21
For me these are dust magnets and desk fillers
not even very portable for remote recovery or backup
I will use old faithful til USB3 stuff appears
For about £12 delivered
- 1.8" CF/2.5" IDE female connector
- 3.5"/5.25" IDE female connector
- 2.5"/3.5" SATA female connector

Weirdo ESATA card

Not proper ESATA - means you cannot use full 2 metre cables ( i think ?0

Sorry you are wrong there IDE / SATA docking stations are available see here and many other places too http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.31937

You are correct about IDE not being hot swapable so care needs to be taken when connecting and disconnecting one but it is possible.

I am looking for an external backup option and wondering whether I should get a hard disk and this docking station? Is there any advantage/disadvantage of this system over buying a normal backup drive like WD Mybook drives?
#26
I got the same thing here http://www.usbnow.co.uk/Hard_Drive_Enclosures-Hard_Drive_Docking_Stations/c10_171/p1879/2.5_&_3.5_SATA_USB_2.0_HDD_+_Card_Reader/product_info.html for £18.95 + £1.95 p&p.
Great device as I have a couple of sata hdd's I needed to recover data from. USB & card reader works well too!

Why would you want IDE these days ?


there are plenty of people who will have spare IDE drives knocking around, with capacities of 300g-500g that can be made useful with a USB caddy or something like this which might be bettere for those who have several spare drives, but don't want to buy a caddy for each one. i could backup a pile of non essential stuff that might not otherwise get backed up onto it and stash it away somewhere

these docking stations aren't designed for permanent use with a drive, they are ideally for tech guys who just want to test drives etc for a few mins/hours, it saves time screwing the drive into a caddy or inside a machine

they are also great if you want to pretend you are the geek from dollhouse, but without a hot chick lying on a couch next to you. you might need to substitute pr0n instead
#28
Also handy from recovering data from old computers, that only have IDE drives in them

What about if you bought a IDE to SATA adapter from Deal Extreme?
They're only about a fiver or less

If your Computer is already setup running Windows without AHCI, then leave this SATA BIOS setting disabled. See http://www.techmetica.com/howto/sata-ahci-mode-bios-setting.-what-does-it-do/. Your Windows is restarting due to the AHCI driver not being originally installed.

See here for some ways to get it working, it depends on which chipset your motherboard is using:

You are so cool and wif it!!

I'm guessing 1995 is around the time you were born.

Nothing wrong with IDE for backup. Loads of old reliable drives out there and this is a great way to turn them into a viable backup media.
#35
does anyone know how these would work with Mac? I recently got a mac but i still have a lot of stuff on my old toshiba....could i plug the toshiba HDD into this and access the files without it booting to windows. Does that make sense? obviously previously on the toshiba windows would boot from the HDD, i don't want that on the Mac...merely to access the files. Possible?

or another option is if I have bootcamp set up and i connect this while running windows what will happen, will there be a conflict between the installed windows on the mac and the windows xp on the HDD.

sorry I know I sound like a noob but I have been pondering the transfer of files for ages. I do have another external HDD to transfer files but the files are currently all over the place.

VOTED HOT BTW!
