Newer Technology has announced that it is shipping its $24.95 USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter, a device that enables you to move data from an old hard drive to a new hard drive without having to buy a complete enclosure.
The USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter works with any hard drive mechanism — 2.5, 3.5 or 5.25-inch, or optical drive with IDE, ATA, ATAPI or SATA connection, to be hooked up to a Mac or PC using USB 2.0.
Newer created the adapter so users who upgrade their internal hard disk drives can transfer data to a new drive. The adapter has been tested to work with all hard drive brands and optical drive brands.
All hardware needed to get drives to work is included. No software is needed.
