Know anyone with a USB external hard drive?

Dismantle, plug your drive in in the enclosure, transfer contents to your PC, put their drive back in.

Are you sure that your motherboard doesn't have IDE connectors?

I find that rather weird, as they're pretty common!

It'd rule out the majority of CD/DVD drives, alot of HDDs etc.

... I may be able to help... Do you have any good movies or TV shows on the drives I can score?
