Re: external hard drives and Mac

My gut feeling after years of doing this is that sometimes the power supply in an external case doesn't have enough power to consistently boot certain drives. OWC sells a nice kit that will temporarily connect any USB drive (SATA or IDE, 2/5 or 3.5) that is useful for troubleshooting.
