To get the answer to your questions about what external case you need for
the drive, the drive itself must be identified, by type and interface.
As you say the computer is older, I could *guess* that you have a parallel
ATA (PATA) 3 1/2 drive and tell you to get an external case for that kind of
drive that will allow you to connect it to a USB port (presuming the
computer you intend to connect it to has USB ports).

To make answers you get more than speculation, you need to provide details.
If you can't figure out the details, I suggest you take the drive to a local
computer store, show it to them, and ask them to put it into a case.

Hello, I need to set dynamically height and width attributes of an image control on a WebForm. I know how to read the whole image from the hard-drive and use its height and width properties. I guess it is not efficient as the whole image needs to be read. I need to retrieve only two parameters: height and width. Is it possible to read only the size of image from the hard-drive?

Hi, I have a big problem with a Visual C++ 6.0 function that retrives the logical drives and types in the local system. This function works perfectly on Windows 98, NT, 2000, XP and 2003, but I have tested it on Windows Vista and it doesn't retrieve remote network drives. It must retrieve a string with the drive letters and a string with the drive types (2=removable drive, 3=hard drive, 4=remote drive, 5=CD-ROM drive, 6=RAM drive) I...
