I have a WD800 and a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9. Does anyone know an external docking station for these two hard drives? I would like to use them thru a usb port. Thankx in advance.

A hard drive is...a hard drive, regardless of manufacturer.

There are differences...PATA versus SATA, size differences...but any device that accommodates a hard drive (such as what you describe) will not be showing preference to a particular manufacturer of drives.

www.newegg.com and www.tigerdirect.com are two places you can look up components, compare prices, etc.

Another decent website is www.bizrate.com, still another is www.pricewatch.com.

When searching, use the phrase "USB dock" or something like that.

Another search term you might use is USB Hard Drive Enclosure.
