I read some time ago on DC in the topic http://www.donationc...60.msg30178#msg30178 (Scythe Kama Connect - external usb drive - but it doesnt use an exclosure - cool) and thought at the time what a great idea it was, but it still doesn't seem to be available :(

Well anyway... the other day I came across a very similar device at scan.co.uk which reminded me of the topic and as it'lll be such an invaluable item to have for me, I thought I'd share it with you all

http://www.scan.co.u...?WebProductID=469178 (Magic Storage Bridge - IDE-ATA-ATAPI-SATA/SATAII/e-SATA) for £15.99 +p&p
