Hey guys I have 2.0Ghz Macbook, and I just recently upgraded to a 160GB harddrive. I now want to use my old 60GB harddrive from my Macbook laptop. What is the right USB external hard drive enclosure to buy for it. I will most likely buy one from ebay. Also will this harddrive work with my PC?

Just about any good USB enclosure should work OK. (Buy one that is specific for the size of the drive you're removing.)

To use your old drive for both OS X and Windows, format it to FAT-32.

Regards.

ragamp,

Here's the one I have, very happy with it, easy installation... includes cables, a cloth case and uses either USB or eSATA. $32 with shipping from Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817145393
