    I need an enclosure to get my powerbook hard drive up and running again. Anyone have a suggestion for a specific one? I'm looking for an...IDE/UATA enclosure, right?

    Check out this drive enclosure. It's the one I use and I love it.

    Thanks. That one's a little tough on the wallet factor. Was hoping for something a bit cheaper if possible.

    I just bought a generic enclosure at a computer centre here (Hong Kong), however I don't know where you'd go to get one of those where you are. It came with USB and FW, cost peanuts.

    I have a Dynex USB 2.0 enclosure.

    It works perfectly. Its rated for up to an 80GB on the box, but I've used a 120GB drive in there with no problems.

    You can get it at Best Buy.

    Thanks for the recommends everyone. I happened on an adaptec model that matches my 3.5" externals, so I grabbed one.
