Transferring external HDs into enclosure

I have a Maxtor OneTouch III Turbo Edition 600 GB FireWire 400/800 and USB 2.0 Hard Drive, which you can see at this site:

I just ordered this enclosure: Galaxy METAL GEAR Metal Gear Box 3500SAP-SESIL Aluminum 3.5" Silver USB 2.0 External Enclosure - Retail

But I don’t think they are compatible.
The connectors don’t seem to match, and there are two hard drives in the Maxtor, so should I have bought two enclosures or one that fits both into it?

I tried to connect one of the hard drives into the Metal Gear Box, but the white plastic connector wasn’t the same as the one to the Maxtor HD.

Can anyone advise me to a compatible enclosure or tell me what I’m doing wrong?


Welcome to the forum it could only be IDE or SATA. As for the link you posted…it is already an external drive. So why the need to buy another enclosure? The drive is plug and play ready to go! Just but the Maxtor and forget the additional enclosure.
