I am looking for a 2.5 inch SATA External USB Hard Drvie Enclosure but i have a SAS drive 146GB (mbd2147rc)fugitsu 10K rpm, which is 12.5mm in height.
I cant seem to find any enclosure that is compatabile, all i find is the newer 9.5mm, So i need an enclosure that can hold a 12.5mm,146GB and can handle speeds of 10k

SAS drives are not compatable with SATA are they? (The reverse is true - a SAS controller can accept a SATA drive, but not vice versa)...

You need a SAS controller, and they aren't that cheap... How did you come by the drive? Might be better to try and sell it and just by a SATA one...

It should sell on ebay, and you might get close to enough to buy a decent external enclosure with a larger capacity...
