Is the SATA hard drive compatible with the IDE enclosure?
NO, they have different connectors and use a different method of communication. SATA external enclosures do not seem to be readily available (where I am anyway). Why do you particularly want a SATA drive?
If you do find a SATA external enclosure double check what type of power connector it uses because some SATA hard drives have a standard 4 pin power connector whereas others have, for want of a better word, a SATA power connector (you can get adaptors but there won't be room for them in an external enclosure).
