    IDE USB Dongle

    Heres what want to do.

    Take an EIDE/IDE device and make it USB. I have found dongles on Ebay that will work. Has anyone had any experience with this? I don't want to buy an external enclosure, because I have an extra case lying around that I would like to convert to hold 3 HD's and CD Burner and DVD burner. I figured that I could use and dongle to make all of these devices USB and the have them plugged into my server.

    Are these safe or should I buy an external enclosure?

    i can't see why they would be any different then having the electronics mounted inside of a regular enclosure performance wise.
