Wow... that would be great. We are always looking for more space!

Sounds great...Free is good! Thanks HH.
Tru tru, Bob! Never thought of it that way but you're right! Just gotta find a place to mount it, though I think it would make for a spiffy notebook upgrade.
I dont have a notebook but I know some of you guys do so good luck on snagging you a drive.
you can also get an excellent brushed metal sata to usb enclosure about the size of the passport drives that needs no external power on newegg for less than 20 bucks. I got an "internal" drive and the enclosure still beat the price for my backup drive and its worked fantastic so far!
Too bad I live in Canada.
Cross fingers! A blind friend was looking for an external drive for his music. If he ripped all his CDs he'd have 40 GB, so this would be perfect for him-- and I'd spring for a decent case. We've been looking around but 80s seem to be a thing of the past, and even a 320 would just go to waste (plus this one would not require external power).
I did this operation with my old Powerbook drive and wound up with a very nice 20 GB external, so good luck to all!
