Hard Drive Enclosure for IDE & SATA
Jun 21, 2013, 6:35 AM
I have 2 old HDD's from my desktops and wanted to know if I can purchase an external case to hold both? 1 is an IDE and 1 is SATA...
What is the easiest way to do this where I can access both for additional plug and play storage space?

This may not be exactly what you're looking for, but it I think it will do what you want. Most enclosures are built to hold 1 drive, not multiple drives.

You'd probably be best just getting separate enclosures.
Or go SATA-only.
