I found this cool 2.5" caddy,so i thought i would just mention it here.

You put a 2.5" hdd in the external caddy,which can be slotted into the bay part in your pc,which negates the need to connect it by a usb cable.When it is slotted into your pc it connects by sata,which is much faster than usb.

I will be putting my 160gb 2.5" hdd into it,my mates are gonna get one too,so if they come to mine,they can just slot their drives into my bay and quickly copy stuff from my pc to their drive.

When i get it,i will do some speed comparisons with the drive connected by a usb cable and with it slotted in the bay and connected by sata.

here are the sata(plugged into caddy) v's usb(external with usb cable) results.It looks to me like usb is capped to 35mb/s.
