    HELP. I need a Firewire and USB external case

    I've seen an external HD which is both Firewire and USB but not a generic case. I want to put an ORB drive in it and would like to have the speed of Firewire but still be able to use USB in PC's without Firewire.

    A supplier here in OZ would help a lot.

    Cheers...

    by sheer coincidence a guy at work ordered a portable hdd that seems to fit your need perfectly.

    its a lacie pocketdrive, both firewire and usb 2.0 connection and comes up to 60gb. link here

    hope that helps

    Thanks RIS but I contacted Castlewood (the ORB folks) and it seems they now produce exactly what I'm after including USB 2.0 and SCSI.
