looking for an external HDD enclosure, but has some limitations

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi folks!

My Freecom Mobile Drive MG 320gb 7mm had its Micro USB 3.0 connector break off.

Tried to solder it back on, but didnt make it work.

I tried looking on Ebay for a new enclosure, but most of them are for 9.5mm drives, but I got a 7mm drive, so I dont want the extra depth.

I found one that would meet my requirements, but the seller was located in the US, so shipping would be $50us. frown.gif

Does any1 know of a affordable hdd enclosure, for a 7mm, 2.5" drive, that has a Micro USB connector (not needed if cable is provided) and does not require external power?

Can be from any store, but shipping must be affordable for me here in Norway and dont want to wait forever for it to arrive.

thank you smile.gif

Something like this? It's 1cm in depth so it's only 5mm thicker than regular sized 2.5" drive.

I saw that, but I didnt like the double USB connectors.

I bought this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261087413391?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

Not sure if it comes with a USB Cord, but I have the one from the Freecom, so its not an issue.
