Hi, I posted up pics in a post but It says I need a mod to approve the post...

The external drive is powered by a power source (a wire that I got in the IDE box) and another cable runs from the external drive to the Mac via USB. I'm obviously going to need an enclosure? I bought one before but they are quite small...I could not fit the external drive into the enclosure.
