    This worked fine for me.
    I used this to connect my ide hard drive. works like a charm, the transfer rate wasnt amazing though.

    Good luck, I actually bought mine from dealextreme.com and recently sold it after use.

    Let me know if you have any questions,
    Dave

    I have been using these for the last two years, they work great.

    The one I use right now I got off Deal Extreme for ~ £6 delivered, even came with a UK power cable. :thumbsup:

    Make sure it comes with a power adapter, some of the cheaper ones don't.

    it's the same thing as buying an enclosure really =]

    (actually i believe they're about the same price if you look on the bay?)
