Will this work with both of these
Most probably however both will require an external power source (the IDE disc might not, however it will require a properly powered USB connection) and will most probably not work at the same time.
Oh I know that and I wouldn't use them at the same time
Then don't ask and thank you for your reply.
Don't ask what
I use one regularly and it works well. You'll need an external power-source for the SATA drives, and I recommend using one anyway even with IDE drives using a 2,5"-to-3,5" adapter.
Surely you need an external power for all drives.
i used one with a 2.5 inch 40gb ide drive without a power supply on my wii at first without any hastles, upgraded to powered external after a couple of weeks though
2.5" HDDs generally don't require any more power than what's provided by the USB port, although many 2.5" HDD enclosures tned to use cables that take up two USB ports to provide additional power if needed. Certain 3.5" HDDs can also run off USB power alone, although it's not recommended.
As for the device linked in the top post... it's simple and effective. I've seen better versions (ones that provide power too), but it should do just fine.
