  • I was looking for this solution some years ago, and came across an even more interesting option:

    IDE-to-USB Converter
    cost: around Rs. 1000
    Karachi – Uni Plaza
    Lahore – Hafeez Center or Hall Road should have it
    Islamabad – Blue Area should have it

    How it works:
    It connects your usual internal hard drives via USB. Internal HDD are much cheaper than external.


    Use it for backup, mass data transfers etc

    It is an angel of blessing for accessing crashed hard drives by connecting them to a working computer for data recovery.

    Device comes with additional option of SATA connector, with which you can even connect Laptop HDD via USB!

    Personal Recommendation:
    I am using it since 2005. Works great. Simple, and useful.

  • The main problem in using it , is that u need to carry the charger of the case all the time. Whereas if you have a portable hard drive u need to plug the usb cable only. Neways it is a cheaper solution if anyone need to have portable hard drive.

    Also one category of this hard case is available in which you have a direct Ethernet connectivity. so u can make a cheap NAS :-))

  • Nice device….but it is strange that a separate power cable is required to operate the device. actually, a usb cable is already composed of 4 wires; 2 supports serial data transfer while 2 others supports power requirements!

  • Great so u need to a power connector for power adapter.
    How com u say it can be used as NAS when the device is not having a network port?

  • Kindly give me the information about the external hard drive. Can i use it as operating system. when a system has already connected internal harddrive. give me the answer quick. ok bye

  • there is no match with the factory USB HDD and this typo self made HDD , as the SHOCK is the main factor , one can easily damage the self made USB HDD in a single jerk. :) so buy a factory made usb / external HDD . maxtor is best and cheaper external HDD.

  • hi guys m using these two devices(hard disk with box and usb flash hard drive)
    the main problem with boxed hard drive is that u have to use external power.
    but m more convenient with usb flash hard drive
    obviously price difference is material, but if u like to have luxury then price is immaterial :-)
