Default Looking for external HD enclosure for SATA drives, Complicated, Read on:

Hey to all the forum, been lookin for a good hardware forum for some help, so hello all.

Ive got a a few serial ata internal drives (maxtor diamond plus 9 80gb) lying around, and thoughtt i would use one and get a kit to turn it into an external drive for my laptop.

However, It seems no-where on earth actually makes external enclosures for internal Serial ata drives. Plenty for IDE etc. but not sata.

A google search brings nothing but IDE to sata, (but the external sata, like usb but justt for HD's)

So what i want is a kit to tturn this: http://www.3dnews.ru/documents/6922/...lus9_SATA.jpeg

into one of these:

for this:

Oh yeah, if thats not annoying enough to find. Its gotta be for UK

Many, many, many...in fact 1000' thank you's to anyone who can offer a little advice on where to find anything like this.

many thanks
