I have a 60 gig IDE drive that used to be in my desktop. Well my desktop died, and if possible I'd like to use it with my laptop. I've heard that there are devices that will convert IDE to USB....just pop the IDE drive into an enclosure, and plug the enclosure into the USB port.
Does anybody have any experience with this? I did a quick websearch and it would appear that these devices do exist; I'm wondering if they can be used with linux.
Any recommendations on what to buy would be helpful.
