    Don't think you'll get one for £50. Get an IcyBox USB or Firewire external
    HDD enclosure, self powered not USB powered, and you can put any size of HDD
    in it. I got mine from Aria.

  5. Firstly all external HDD are identical to internal HDD except they are
    housed in an enclosure. I paid £40 for a 60GB laptop and £4 for a
    suitable USB enclosure from Ebay. All have been working perfectly for
    the past year.

    thanks to all. is it complicated to fit into enclosure. do i need to buy
    additional leads elsewhere. all this can be complicated for a novice.

    Glad to help. Complicated No. Extras No. (should be complete kit). Easy if
    you use commonsense.
    best wishes..OJ
