It does not help that your site is crap either.

I wanna ask u.

obtain a few 2.5" HDD.

wanna know a method to connect to system via USB.

is there any simple method rather than using HDD external case ?

All I am thinking of solution for SATA to USB with PCB controller & connector without case.

am I sound unclear ?


@noorul @selea

If I may chime in...

Two ways you can easily connect 2.5" (or 3.5", too_ HDDs via USB:

1) Dock (2-drive)
Sabrent USB 3.0 to SATA I/II/III Dual Bay External Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5 or 3.5in HDD

2) Cable (2.5" only) SATA to USB Cable - USB 3.0 to 2.5” SATA III Hard Drive Adapter

Product descriptions were taken off of Amazon, and they may not be available to you. You will have a brand and product type label to work with, if not.

I hope this helps!

awesome guru.

the way you organised your response and given additional info about products availablity is simple amaze me.

Thanks, but it was nothing more than searching for items I have and are familiar with using off of Amazon's site. That said, if this instance allowed for more characters, I would have written a thesis with chats and graphs. Can't help it. Goes with 30+ years of teaching and supporting computer users. πŸ˜‰

Good luck finding what you need.

@noorul @selea

*charts, not chats....haven't had enough morning coffee. 😞

I start following you now and eagerly waiting to engage in conversation with you πŸ˜„


May I suggest you to get an account with #Plume instance to share long posts.

We can follow & interact from Mastodon to Plume.

This will be great for a person like to share more knowledge to social media



No thanks. Sorry. I was being facetious about the length of my posts.

I don't spend a lot of time on social media. Once in a while, if I can, I like to help others. My focus and efforts now are in other directions more important to me.


Hmm. Common carrier deliveries, as well as shippers, have been really slow since before Christmas, at least in the US. I would think by now they would ave caught up and would be back onto schedule. Amazon has especially been slow, shipping out to 5 days on Prime orders. I consider 2-day delivery part of what I pay them every year for, so this ticks me off.

None of the common carrier sites is particularly incitefull.

Hopefully you'll see it before your day's done.
