  1. ok my friend has a device to be able to use a IDE internal drive externally
    via the usb port i was wondering would something like that be able to be found for a sata drive. The case i have only has 2 slots for sata and it came with a dvd lite scribe burner and a HD both sata but I unhooked the burner for now so i can use my other sata drive that already had my apps and music,movies on it from another pc. the cd burner that is hooked up is a reg ide I dont know what the name of the device he is using or if it even has a name but its pretty neat has a power cord for it and you put the hard drive in it well slide it in and he hooks the internal drive to the usb port thru it.
