I am building a new rig and soon my old IDE drives will be available! I am thinking of using the old IDE drives for backups and like to buy a firewire enclosure - I have the following questions:
My proposed setup
1. I will buy 2 external hdd enclosures with IEEE (at least two ports on each enclosure)
2. Connect the first hdd enclosure to my computer (thru IEEE) and use the other IEEE connector to connect the 2nd hdd enclosure
Can I do the above setup?
Will the computer see the IEEE connection as one drive letter?
Are there any limitations as to how much external hdd enclosures I can daisy chain?
Do I need a power supply for each hdd enclosure?
Any other ideas???
