PM with address sent, should get it sorted in no time. Just wrap it in tin foil before you package it to protect against ESD, just a single wrap is enough and don't need perfect coverage.

Thanks for the link.

I did actually measure it, with several different rulers, and yes it is about 14.5mm thick, no the biggest isn't 12.5mm - the biggest currently is mine ;)



For all those still on tenterhooks about my hard drive - I picked up a it-ceo (chinese I think) enclosure off TradeMe, it happens to be USB3, but it also is suitable for drives up to 1Tb.  My drive is thicker (surprise surprise) but since the enclosure has a removable lid instead of the usual sleeve type cover the hd fits inside snugly without putting the lid on.  So yes, the drive is working again, and if I get around to replacing my usb ports with usb3's then that's a bonus.

Hi there,

Could you post the details of the enclosure you bought on trademe, and possibly the username of the seller? I have the exact same problem with my Seagate drive...a quick search for it-ceo on trademe did return any results..

Much appreciated.

The seller was diyhouse http://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Listings.aspx?member=3122076

The carry case is vinyl not leather.  The reason I got that one was because the listing specifically said suitable for drives 1TB and up- all the rest said smaller drives or didn't say anything.  I have the upper half of the case tied on neatly with a piece of string :) - cotton string doesn't generate static.

My only drawback is that I can't retrofit a usb3.0 port to my computer - the only PCI-e slot is already taken :(
