Hi!
Can this be used for a VERY OLD (1996) IDE drive? (I.E. to transfer win95 B files to a new PC [WIN10]).

StarTech.com
“USB 3.0 SATA/IDE 2.5” Hard Drive Enclosure
P/N: UNI251BMU33
Here it is on Staple’s Web site.

StarTech.com USB 3.0 Universal 2.5" SATA III or IDE Hard Drive Enclosure with UASP, Portable External SSD / HDD
http://www.staples.ca/en/StarTech-com-U ... CA_1_20001

If you post a link to NewEgg, please include the text b/c I get sent IMMEDIATELY to the Canadian site which inevitably does NOT have THE PRODUCT.

I canNOT find anything else on Staples which might have IDE connection-ability.

If anyone could post the correct enclosure on Staple's Web site I would appreciate it

Thank you!

As long as the drive is a 2.5" (laptop) parallel ATA (aka "IDE") drive then according to the specs I see here it should work. If you get it let me know how well it works, Scott.

Thank you!
No it is 3.5 " (from an old desktop)
I do not see any items that would be compatible with the drive.
Do you see any enclosures for circa 1996 3.5" IDE desktop drives?

I have other old drives. All the computers are “over-the-hill”.


Thank you!

Any of these should work as they support 3.5" "IDE" (Parallel ATA) drives: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductLi ... 0600006270
