I need a recommendation for an enclosure. I was all set to order the Plumax mentioned at the end of the big enclosure thread, but discovered it’s not compatible with Mac OS X. I need one that will work with my PC (WinXPSP2) and my wife’s Mac Mini which is running OS X ver.3. Otherwise the features of the Plumax are exactly what I’m looking for – work with both 5.25 and 3.5 inch drives, work with either USB2 or firewire.
If it’s not piling on, I have a second - related - question. Is it worthwhile to add a firewire card to my PC for use with the external drive? My PC has native USB2 which works fine with other devices.
