They use to easily have HDD drive enclosures in stock at most Best Buy (along with the former CompUSA, Circuit City stores) and some Office Depot or Staples stores. Now you can only find them on their online stores. (At least here in Hawaii where they don't seem to stock them.)

You'll need to open your case to find out what type of connector the internal drive uses to get the right case to get to put the drive into.

If you feel that you have to correct some of my posts for my capitalization of some of my words, then just bear with it. It's just a discussion forum where some may be limited by time to answer in well-versed and eloquent sentences.
