I found this little gem on the web yesterday when I was looking for something else. It's a simple USB device which can be connected to an old hard drive either with a SATA cable, or a 40-pin IDE/ATA cable, or even an Iomega Zip drive. It's also very cheap: http://www.newertech.com/products/usb3_universaldriveadap.php

I've got a number of HDs which I've removed from their original machines and which are now sitting in a cupboard accumulating dust, so this device will allow me to put them to good use as additional storage. :cool:
