Before I bought a Laptop I was using a desktop computer with two harddisk drives. One was Samsung 40 GB and the other Samsung 80 GB. But the desktop computer developed a fault on its main board and it was beyond repair. Therefore I had to to scrap the desktop computer.

The laptop I use has 40 GB internal Hard disk. Now with all the downloads and all I needed more hard disk space. There fore I decided to buy external hard drive.

The sales person at the computer shop told me that it was very much possible to connect old hard disk drives. All I had to do was to buy a IDE to USB convertor for each hardisk. Now with these IDE to USB connector I can still use my old hard disk drives without any problem. These new external drives were immediately recognized by BIOS, Windows and Ubuntu. I could delete old partitions, create new partitions and format these from windows and Ubuntu. I even installed Ubuntu Linux on my new usb external drive made from old hard disk drive.

By just using old hard disk drives and IDE to USB connector I was able to save many $$$s.
