what kind of enclosure for WD 160GB EIDE internal drive.

by hary536 / December 11, 2007 9:09 AM PST

I am having this WD 160GB EIDE internal drive with model #
WD1600JBRTL. I am confused as to which usb enclosure will work with this drive.
IF the enclosure specs say it includes IDE to USB cable, will that work with my drive? Pls provide your suggestion or if you know of any enclosure, pls point me to that?

drives up to 160GBs should work. The rest depends on what other features you want fans for active cooling, firewire, etc.,
