    Possibly but why not save yourself some cash and buy a caddy (I have a diagnostic one that plugs into USB I picked up for £20) and a seperate drive.

    Basically it is like a card reader except for drives, make sure any one you get supports the required connections (some are SATA only)

    Rawdump 2.0 works with USB drives.

    I'm not sure on the specifics on what "USB drives" means, but I'm pretty sure it's talked about in this thread:
