Universal Drive Adapter

We’ve always wanted one of these: a universal disk drive adapter. In fact, it’s called the USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter from¬†NewerTech.com. This little $25 gadget lets you use a drive from an old or discarded computer that no longer works. We always save the disk drives from computers we replace because these drives contain data and old programs we liked but don’t have anymore. Those drives can be connected to a new computer using a device like this one.

The Newer Technology Universal Adapter lets you connect a laptop, desktop, CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and it works with Mac, Windows or Linux. It can handle either the older IDE type drives and the new SATA drives in any size.
