USB 2.0 to IDE or SATA Drives All Sizes
Simple as a cable

If you need to move data around a lot or like to back up to cheaper internal drives, this USB 2.0 to IDE and SATA adapter from Newertech is going to be right up your street. As the price of HD drives drops, some find it cheaper to backup data to raw drives (without an enclosure) and pop em in the cupboard for archiving. We do that due to the large amounts of video data we generate and it works a treat. Because USB 2.0 has a theoretical max data rste of 480mbs it can be used to copy data without any great delays. This new Universal Drive Adapter implements a bridge between one USB port and one ATA, Serial ATA, or ATAPI based mass storage device port. The USB 2.0 to IDE Drive Adapter turns any ATA or SATA drive into a convenient external drive. Easily transfer files from computer or notebook, back up files, or store large file archives on hard drives. The Hi-Speed USB interface provides for easy installation with its Plug and Play design.
