Thank you, this encourages me to try the one I listed..if It doesn't work I can always return it.

qglue, Im wondering if its not working because the IDE and enclosure are too old
maybe I can play around with a line of code to make it to work like you got your modem to work but it will never mount if fdisk never sees it.
its about five years old. wondering how to make it so fdisk could see it ..its shameful because its such a attractive enclosure with the blue lights
