Newbie Q PHR-250CC & Western Digital Scorpio 100GB 2.5IN SATA 5400RPM 8MB 12MS Notebo
I just bought the Macalley PHR250cc Firewire /USB 2.0 External Enclosure for 2.5" HDD and a Western Digital Scorpio 100GB 2.5IN SATA 5400RPM 8MB 12MS Notebook Hard Drive.
They don't seem to fit together. Did I make a mistake?
from what i can find your drive should fit in it. opps yessssssssss u did my friend i got his from macally's site [Design for 2.5" IDE HDD (up to 9.5mm height)] its for only ide drives u have a sata drive there:(
Would you suggest I return the case or the Hard drive? Is the SATA suitable for external hard drive use (total newbie!). It's obviously the more expensive, so might be hard to return. I bought it online. :doh:
Return whichever one is easier to return.
Then get the correct enclosure/hard drive.
the hard drive is a laptop hard drive so it should work i think i know if it was an ide hhd then it would need an adapter for a desktop mobo, but in sata i think its same either way i have one ill test it for u later tomorrow at work. oh and welcome to the forums
edit: oh yes im sorry i mis read question yes if u get a sata enclosure it will work for external but how much was the hhd becasue u can get a 500gb 7200 external kit for like 200
