Raspberry Pi - IDE to USB interface
I will use old IDE HDD on raspberry, anyone has similar setup and hints on which interface USB / IDE to use?
I have 03 HDD with IDE only, my goal is to use only one USB port to acess those three drivers.

If you want to use all 3 drives at the same time you will either need to have a powered usb hub or one of those rather expensive usb storage devices that support raid/stripe on 2 or more disks (like the Lacie 2big Thunderbolt ).

If on the other hand you want to plug in one at a time it's just a matter of choosing a convenient way of flipping them around that suits your budget.
Schneidz's solution id pretty good, I've a similar adapter that I find very handy, it came with tan external power supply supplement for driving full power 3.5" drives.

Well due to the old age of those disks i will not spend resources on an adapter that will be used until those disk fail, which could be soon.
