    Hey everybody. So I have two IDE hard drive laying around and I want to but them in a nice external FW800 enclosure. I like this one from MacSales. http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Other World Computing/MEFW912AL2/

    However it doesn't state anywhere (that I can find) about whether it houses IDE or SATA hard drives!

    If anyone knows and could help me out, that would be appreciated. I will call them tomorrow if no one knows. Thanks.

    P.S. I know this should be in the peripherals but no one ever goes in there!

    I'm pretty sure that the Oxford 912 chipset is for IDE/ATAPI drives, and not SATA.

    Yeah although it doesn't say anywhere that is what I am getting. Anyone have any experience with these things?

    They look pretty nice and will match my Mac Pro :D Only thing is there is that Oxford is working on a UB. :(
