    Help!

    I ordered a 2.5" USB caddy IDE one after being informed on here that my HDD was IDE but it doesnt fit
    Does that mean its a SATA?
    Thanks

    no it's 3.5 ide



    Hmmm. That would explain it then!

    2.5 is laptop and 3.5 computer you may be able to buy an adapter for the caddy as we have one that goes 3.5 ide to 2.5 ide they are'nt that expensive

    That cable is a 2.5 to 3.5 IDE cable

    The top connection is a 2.5 inch (for laptops) , the bottom connection is a 3.5 (for desktops)

    You would have bought a caddy for the wrong size

    Im sure the drive he wanted to use in it was from his laptop that had died.



    Can you post a pic of the business end of the drive you are using?
