I bought my iMac last spring, after my dell died. I was told the mother board failed.
I have two 160GB sata 2 HDs, from my old dell. I want to use one to clone the HD on my iMac using SuperDuper. I did a search, and found out about SuperDuper, and something about not being able to connect any thing larger than 127GB with firewire. Is there any way to use usb on a sata 2 HD.

OS X 10.4.11

Hardware Overview:

Model Name: Mac
Model Identifier: iMac5,2
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 1.83 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1

L2 Cache (per processor): 2 MB
Memory: 1 GB
Bus Speed: 667 MHz
Boot ROM Version: IM52.0090.B09
SMC Version: 1.6f0

An external enclosure will work to go from sata II to usb. You should probably check with Super Duper to see if it supports this combo before you finalize your purchase.

I am not sure where you read that. I use a 250 GB Firewire interfaced external hard drive for my backups. Works like a charm.
