Wanted: External Hard-Drive casing

My external hard drive works fine but it's dying bit by bit, first the USB cable, now it's not powering properly! I'm looking for a new case.

My HDD is IDE.

Ideally I'd want one that was fanless and with no power supply necessary but these aren't essential. What I do know though is that if it's a basic one, I want a basic price! Else, I'll just go to Eclipse or something.

So if anyone has one they're selling, please share the wealth!

If its a normal 3.5@ drive you have then it will NEED an external power supply. On top if this I recommend you get on with a fan just to keep the thing cooler than at stock temperatures else you may find a fried drive on day and lost data.

Shame it was not a SATA drive as I have 2 external cases for sale right now.

Still, good luck in your quest.
The one with an external power supply is fine :-) and yes, normal 3.5". I know some cases have internal cooling which is ideal but with a fan, it'll do!

Thanks for the advise, if anyone has anything then just throw me a bone!
Let's call this a bump, I'm still looking.
ive got a fanless one with power supply, IDE
are you interested?
i got one usb 2 called speeze.
the ide clip dodge but works
eternal power lead

let me know


standard kettle lead is needed
j0e, yes I am, give me a price and some pictures. A model number too if you can.

vickihenderson, define dodgy! Also, can I also have some pics, a price and a model number.
ill be able to give u pics later tonigh when i get to my laptop, but i have a model number HD-D2-U2FW hope this helps i think the make is freecom
How much are you looking for this j0e?

Also, I'd want the power supply and also, pictures of the LEDs and the ports please. Also, what condition is it in? And if there's no fan, I presume it's quiet, but woudn't it overheat (advice from anyone on this would be appreciated).
condition is like new, ill give u everything it came with firewire etc ill take a pic of the ports etc but wont be able to upload them till around 6 o clock when i get to my laptop its fanless. I'd say £30 delivered
£30? I'll give it a miss then, I wasn't looking to spend anywhere near as much. I'm happy with a basic one I could pick up from Eclipse for less than £15. Thanks anyway.
I can't believe nobody has a cheapish IDE 3.5' external hard drive casing they don't want, bizarre! Please?!
