I had a Transcend StoreJet 2.5 IDE S. Apparently it's hard drive is screwed coz whenever I connect it to my PC, it makes a rhythmic tick-tock sound. So anyways, I just upgraded my SATA notebook drive, and have the old one left. It fits into the Transcend drive enclosure, and I was hoping to use it as an external drive. However my old laptop notebook has a SATA interface, while the Transcend drive used a IDE hard drive with an adapter for IDE to USB. I was wondering where I could find a SATA to USB adapter for this specific case (Transcend StoreJet 2.5 IDE S), and what this adapter thing is actually called Thanks!
The electronics are different, you will need to buy a compatible enclosure.
Yeah but does anybody where I can get one? I couldn't find it.
I searched Newegg by clicking through Computer Hardware ... Hard Drives ... External Enclosures ... 2.5" size ... SATA I/II Internal Interface. It found 40 units to consider. I presume you will want to use a USB connection to your notebook.
