    I want to connect a 20GB laptop drive to my PC to copy off large MPEGs to copy to DVD.

    How do I do it?

    Is there a USB method?

    Yes I do have a Beta of TwinRIP

    You'll need either a 2.5/3.5 IDE adapter or 2.5" USB "enclosure". Both pretty inexpensive. I think I have a new 2.5" USB 2.0 enclosure somewhere.........will have a look.

    There is a little adapter which allows a laptop drive to connect to a normal IDE cable. I get them from my local supplier. I am looking at the box now and there is only a part No. and bar code, no maker name (white box product) 2.5" to 3.5" adapter. should be easy to find. I assume the drive is removed and you can't network.
