Connect 3.5 IDE drive to 2.5 IDE drive USB enclosure

Post by stuie_norr » Sat, 13 May 2006 18:06:48


Hi Group.

I have a 3.5 " IDE drive I would like to read some data off. On my
laptop I have a 2.5 " IDE external USB drive enclosure.

Is it possible to get a connection that will allow the connection of
the female 2.5 " connector to mal 3.5 connector on the drive? How is
power provided for this? Via the USB?

Thanks

Stuart

Hi Stuart:

There is one conector from 3.5 to 2.5.

I am sure in your local electronics shop should have something and also may
ebay.

I hope it helps.
