I am looking to build an external storage drive but am not quite sure if I have all the correct/needed parts [I am a computer newbie
]. Most important, I need to know if in fact the FDD Cable is needed. I have attached a link [at the bottom of this page] to the Storage Case for added info-- ....
FYI - the external storage drive will be used to back up my files as well as store my mp3 collection. My pc is not cmpatable for SATA drives..
Any suggestions/recommendations would be appreciated!!!!!
