Been a lurker here for a while now, and decided to join in. I'm always finding good info here. I have a friend who has a spare 80G SATA internal drive from his desktop pc. He wants to use it for an external backup with his laptop. I figure he has to get an enclosure for the drive so as to have power to it..,and a SATA card for the laptop. But I don't use laptops and am not up on all the hardware -software for them. Does anyone know how to convert a drive over like this? Or do you know of any hardware we can use to do this.
Thnx in advance for any info on this. Much appreciated. Hawk
