Repair a dead drive without fully removing it
Authored by: mustang_dvs on Mar 29, '05 12:07:17PM

What about WiebeTech's firewire-based drive docks -- the one I have has saved my butt a couple of times.

(Sorry, I recoil at the thought of using USB, when you have a Firewire option at hand; granted, the Wiebetech docks cost about $50 more...)

Repair a dead drive without fully removing it

Unless I missed something, the WiebeTech is $250 - that's a heck of a lot more than the USB / IDE cable.

(I never heard of this before either, but I'm going to look for one - it's a good way to use an old drive as a temporary backup without installing it in a case...)
