IDE/SATA Hard Drive enclosure?

15 May 2015 - 10:09 AM

Just wondering if anyone knew of any good deals on an Internal Hard Drive enclosure for SATA/IDE drives? I have a number of older drives that my new motherboard won't support anymore (no ide ports).

I have seen one of those *hot swappable* types that goes into one of your bays but that's for SATA/SSD only.

 

I do have a 2tb SATA internal HD that's a few years old that I would like to transform into an external drive to be used as an external drive for the XBOX One as well.

 

Suggestions?

 

 


DVD/CD Rot

So I am resuming my process of copying nearly 500 cd's (25 years collecting) so I can put them on my computer and then digital media player.

 

Between brakes I am playing my dvd box sets of Babylon 5 on my newer players (XB1/PS3/etc)

 

All CD's and DVD's have been well kept in cases and away from direct light exposure and moisture and so on.

 

Now my DVD's are starting to fail..   Episodes are starting to skip or become unplayable despite being played once.  Imagine paying 40-60 dollars for each set and 2 or 3 discs are unplayable from each set.

 

As for CD's...yep a lot of them are showing the same signs mentioned in the article.

 

Question is, how good is customer service with these companies in replacing discs that have failed due to rot?

Anyone see this?

I saw it on Friday in RPX... Pretty good movie... Some scenes are a little intense and the ending opens up the possibility of a sequel.


Media Monkey Gold discount code?

After playing around with Media Monkey to rip my cd collection and very impressed with it's tagging abilities to get it "right" 99% compared to ITUNES or Zune, I have decided to buy it however being the CAG that I am , is there any coupon codes out there right now to make it a little cheaper than 50 bucks?

 

thanks
