    Hello,

    I am having trouble finding an enclosure for my soon-to-be-replaced Macbook HDD. I need an external enclosure for a 2,5 inch SATA Harddrive (60GB, standard Macbook HDD) with a FireWire connection, preferably bus-powered.

    Most enclosures with FireWire seem to be for IDE disks and most SATA enclosures seem to use USB2.

    Can anyone help me find such an enclosure? I am located in Belgium, so something that can ship internationally is prefered.

    I was counting on a third of that price. But thanks anyway.

    Yes, Firewire enclosures are really significantly more expensive than their USB counterparts.
