SDLT internal -> External?

Is there a kit you can buy to convert an internal SDTL drive to an external box? I know there's a rackmounted version but that's a bit too much...

Thanks for any replies..

Re: SDLT internal -> External?

Just a clarification. HP doesn't sell such a kit. If you aren't concerned with warrenty coverage there are several vendors that sell external drive cases that can hold the drive. Just make certain that you get one that has the appropriate power supply since an SDLT drive uses a lot more power than a CD or hard drive.

The SDLT 600 specs at quantum.com say typical usage of 32watts it doesn't list maximum. I'd want to allow at least twice that for 65 watts minimum.
