    HU and HD come from different families of technology, I don't believe that there is any HU with an IDE or SATA port, even if there were you've still got to power the HD and have some type of flash memory somewhere to run the HD.

    What you can do is buy HU that will accept some type of flash memory usually through USB. The one below you could get a 1 gig stick and have 1-2000 mp3's
