Hard drive pain.

Highly technical hard drive filter: My hard drive failed. Came home, and PC was sitting at the "where's my hard drive" BIOS screen, to my great horror. [more inside]

ATA cable confusion

Computer question: Last week I posted this question trying to replace a hard drive. Now I have a new problem... the hard drive uses a connector type that I've never seen before and it doesn't agree with what Wikipedia shows. [more inside]

How to take an internal hard drive and make it external

What do I need to know about hard drive enclosures? My computer (PC) died this morning and I want to pull out the 2 hard drives and use them as external drives for my new Mac. I don't know if they're FAT32 or NTFS. I don't know if they're IDE or SATA. How do I find out? Do I need to? A little background on my old PC. It was one of the first P4 3.0 PCs with hyperthreading technology. I've had it for ~4 years

Oh, I wasn't supposed to bang it that hard?

An internal serial ATA (SATA) 3.5" hard drive pulled from an iMac G5 (the iMac is not accessible). A FireWire IDE enclosure. I live in Brooklyn and want some place open tonight (magically) or early tomorrow to find either a USB2 adapter for the SATA drive, a cheap USB2/FireWire enclosure, or an SATA>IDE adapter so I can use my current enclosure. (Give me any ideas that don't involve J&R.) Bonus points for Brooklyn - other boroughs are cool too, or any of these devices on loan from someone extremely generous would also be awesome!
