Thanks all for your answers
The reason why I like that thing is that I have 5 spare HDDs that still contain some data that from time to time I need to use, so I am forced to install a drive on an external box to use it.
Often o:o I can't remember what is the right drive, so I have to swap disks until I find the right one :doh:
Having that mobile rack seems to me a nice idea to use my spare drives comfortably without having a lot of cables over my desk.
I'll check in the BIOS if AHCI is selected, but I assume that it is because all the installed drives are seen by win 7 as "unpluggable" (see the picture).
With that rack my idea is to use the sata slot currently used by the WD10EADS disk (all other sata slots are already used by HDDs or burners, so I can't use them) and use it to install the disk I need at the moment through the rack.
For IDE drives (yes, I have also a couple of these :bigsmile:) I'll use a regular IDE-->USB adapter
About docking stations, I already bought this one a couple of months ago, but it is not working at all. Win7 doesn't recognize it, and the plugging mechanism is tricky, so I never am sure if the disk is correctly installed or not. I wasted â‚¬30 for that thing :doh:
