    Specs:
    Black Macbook Intel 2GHZ CD, 2GB RAM
    External Hard Drive Enclosure
    I am upgrading my hard drive in my MacBook and would like to put the hard drive in an external enclosure but I am having a hard time finding one that is SATA. Has anyone found a small enclosure that I could easily carry it around with me?

    All that I could find relatively quickly, regardless of physical size is this:

    That case is for a 3.5" drive. At least read stuff before your post it.

    Every bloke on this page will waste time looking at your link.

    Where does he specify the drive size in the original post? He requests a small enclosure, but if it's for a 2.5" drive, I'm not sure that there even are SATA 2.5" drives (I'm not sure there aren't either though). Based on the info available in the OP, I tried to find an SATA enclosure that was both USB and Firewire. And, as I stated, I couldn't find anything smaller. Because his internal MacBook drive is a 2.5" drive, doesn't necessarily have any relevance to the external enclosure/drive he might be looking for.

    EDIT: On another review of the original post, I see that he states:
    "I am upgrading my hard drive in my MacBook and would like to put the hard drive in an external enclosure"

    I *now* interpret that to mean he wants to put *that* drive in an external enclosure. I assume then that must be a 2.5" drive, and most likely SATA as he requests. If so, truly then, I responded inappropriately. You would seem to be correct Marlow.

    Are you trying to bump your way up to most aggressive member? I did post because I was trying to help. As I conceded, I mis-read the original post. Have you never make a mistake? I'll continue to post when I want to, on whatever thread I want to, and will continue to try to help. I'll make mistakes again to be sure, but I certainly don't answer to you. I've seen many of your other posts, and you're a good guy, and very helpful. Lighten up. I meant no harm.
