    I just opened up my Lacie 500gb external hd and there are two 250mb hard drives inside!

    I need to get my data off them (power portion broke on the hd casing), but I dont know how since there are two of them. I was going to just get an external casing at the store...

    One is set to master and one slave...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! I dont have a desktop to install these into.

    Thanks :)

    Errr. Connect one to an external casing, take the data off from it, connect the other one to the casing, take the data off? Or buy two casings?

    But of course. Yeah, get that rather than an enclosure. And hope you don't get a bad one like the guy who had his overheated and broken in 3 hours..
