i don't know why they shouldn't work.. it's just an external enclosure rigged with a card reader.... if you want speed out of it, don't get it, it prolly works fine otherwise. just look for reviews on them...?

That's cool...I had a 30gb hd and a 120gb out of dead computers that I put into an external HD enclosure to try and recover the data, but the computer I hooked it to never could see them...the old drives must have been damaged.

Interesting.

I have a SATA external enclosure for my backup drive, and the guts of an IDE enclosure...although I just have the IDE drive hooked up internally right now.
