USB 2.0 to IDE Converter Questions


..of the vast oceans.
6 Feb 2004
The motherboard in my PC recently died leaving me using my tablet PC. I want to be able to retrieve the data from my old HDD (previously in my PC) but obviously I can not connect it directly to my tablet. I am considering purchasing a USB to IDE converter so I can pull the data from my old hard drive but I have a few questions I need answering first. My old hard disk drive has partitions on it, 4 of them in fact, can the USB to IDE converter handle partitions? Will the drive be seen as an actual hard disk or will it appear as a mass-storage device?

Hope someone can help me!
Get an external drive enclosure. It does USB to IDD, partitions do not matter. It's just like it was plugged into the PC.

Cheapest I've found (I have one) is the Bytecc 5.25 inch for $25.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
