"i had 2 hard disks with IDE interface."

If they are 3.5" internal IDE hard disks, the caddy should be fine.

What you might find is ONE USB port will not work your caddy, as it will not supply enough current. The option is to have TWO USB plugs coming from the enclosure to the computer. I have been caught out when checking friends caddies. If not supplied, they can be obtained on ebay!
The above does not apply if the caddy comes with a power supply.
