need to make h/d external

  MidgetMan 09:36 06 Feb 05

My wife has just bought me a new pc, I want to install the slave drive in my old pc to the new one as has got all backups etc on, trouble is when i opened the case on the new one there is no provison to install a slave, is there a way that i can use this slave in an external caddy? or something, the new pc has got usb2 and firewire ports so i guess i just need some sort of caddy? to put the slave into?

Yes, y ou just need a USB2 or Firewire caddy - either will do it and XP will recognise it once connected.

Most online retailers have the required caddies.
