Default hard drive enclosure?

hi, i have a few questions abuot this in case anyone can answer, im pretty sure i know wat this is im just checking


-this allows me to plug in an internal IDE HDD for a standard desktop computer and use it thru USB?

if so

-will i be able to access it thru dos and or Norton Ghost?

-will it be much slower than if it's internal, since it's USB 2.

-i know it's usb 2, does that mean i can by no means use it with USB 1.1?

thanks in advance.

It won't work in DOS
It will take forever if you use 1.1
The speed will most likely stay at 30MB/s
