i was thinking the other nite is it possable to link multible IDE hard drives together as one drive and use it as a external drive?? but then i thought maybe it would only pick up the one drive due to the set amount of data floing through via usb cable? im not shure could it be possable ? its just ive got about 4 drives here doing nout and didnt fancy putting them all into external cases one by one , dont relly care about the mess or no case but could this be possable? any links or information would be greatfull thank you

if the drives are not identical, you'll want to get an external enclosure that does JBOD, not a raid 0/1. JBOD will let you link any drives you want into one large drive, without the performance or mirroring of other RAID options.
