Wester Digital Mybook External Harddrives....

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I got myself a 250GB mybook on sale. It's a USB 2.0 external harddrive.

After the warrenty was up, I got bored, and decided to take the thing apart. It's obviously just an IDE controller , and by taking it all apart I could hook up any of my harddrives and it would work.

Now, does anyone think the technology is the same on all of the WDMB models? If so, maybe I could get a 500GB drive and swap it for the 250 in the case? any thoughts?

Yeah you can. You can drop just about any harddrive in it. In fact some places will sell you just an enclosure.
