    Sorry for the stupid question ahead of time...
    Friend of mine has an extra one of these drives:

    Western Digital Caviar Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    But the back of the drive (or front?) looks like the attachment:

    So it won't work in my 1.1 Mac Pro.

    Can anyone recommend an external enclosure that I could put this in?


    EDIT: or is there a way for me to use this as an internal HD in my Mac Pro?

    Yup. I'm an idiot.
    Works fine.

    For some reason the first time I slid it into the drive bay there was a little resistance; when I looked in I thought the connections looked different. Second time's a charm.

    Thanks anyway. Having one of those weeks...

    You can't be too much of an idiot, that's an excellent hard drive choice.
