I have looked, but cannot seem to find an external HDD dock that will take western digital EIDE Hard drives! Can anyone recomend a suitable device, please?

These should do. Western Digital are no different from any other IDE HDD's as far as I know. Or Ebay.

Thanks Chronus, I'm looking for a dock rather than an enclosure! rdave13 and Peter, Thanks for the link,but as in the description for this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/NIKINGSTORE-SATA-Drive-Docking-Station/dp/B0040F53RG/ref=pdrhfdpscp_2 I keep finding "Western digital not supported" and I can't find a definitive answer!

Most docking stations do not seem to work with WD disks (IDE or SATA). Many, many people have experienced this problem and there doesn't seem to be a work around.

Put it down to experience and avoid WD disks in future.

I had a look at some on Maplins and got this explanation:

"Please note: this docking station does not work with IDE based Western digital hard drives (this is due to a difference in connector placement on said drives compared to most normal IDE models)"
