Transferring data from an old hard drive to a new PC can be such a pain, having to install and remove multiple drives. Newer Technology's latest USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter, which debuted at Macworld 2008, may offer a solution.
Using the common USB port, almost any flavor of hard disks and even optical drives can be hooked up to the PC easily. It's not too expensive, priced at $29.95, and is compatible with Windows, Macintosh, and even Linux systems.
