Sorry, I forgot to respond to this.
Basically, you are telling me that I got ripped off when I bought a larger
60GB drive for my laptop that I paid some $80.00 or so for, IIRC ..
I could have bought a 500GB "portable" external USB drive for c. $100.00 ..
possibly less .. opened the case and provided the actual drive was the right
form factor, had holes in the right places so I could secure it to my laptop's
HDD caddy .. and had an IDE connector/interface.. I would have paid my
Gigabytes at a considerably cheaper rate.. and would be a much happier man,
since my 60GB's are already.. gone.
Food for thought!
