Hi,
i removed the 2.5 inch drive from my old notebook. i expected to be able to buy a external USB case for it at Dick Smith, but they do not sell them anymore!! Also the Internet site says that it runs out. I understand that there are many ways to store your data nowadays, but i want that drive cased and used over USB.
Any ideas about a good online shop ? (flasharcards.co.nz did not have them either)
Cheers
Johan

My supplier, Computer Dynamics, has them for about $18+GST.
I have one myself with a 40GB hdd in it. It comes with a USB cable with 2 usb plugs on one end to get the extra power needed to power the hdd without the need for a power adaptor. It means that it takes up 2 USB ports though.
