it's just a HD enclosure for any existing internal HDs you may have and want to use it as an external one.
it says that it supports upto ATA133 so I can't see what problems you may have apart from the fact that this particular item you're looking at is for Firewire (IEEE1394) connection. Do you have any Firewire ports available to connect this to?

damn, if thats true then im lucky becasue i almost bnought a 160gb western digital at best buy for $90.guess ill just use a 120gb then. thanks a lot for the replies so quickly.

so this will sit fine in the enclosure right? i just want to make sure or my dad will get pissed.
im getting firewire because it is faster.
just a question tho, can a Mac read a drive that formated in NTFS? so my brother can use it.

Depends on the Mac I guess, if it's running OSX I guess it could since normal *nix can, but if it's an older Mac I really doubt it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
