    My Lacie Porsche 298gb drive blew up recently - smoke came out the bottom - can I rehouse the drive in a new enclosure?

    If so where do I get a compatible enclosure?

    Most computer stores sell external enclosures.The Lacie should be a 2.5 inch drive.You just need to make sure the drive itself is still good before buying a new one.Here are a few places that sell them in the USA.It would be best to take the drive with you so you get the correct one.Some drives are Sata and some are Ide/Pata and have different connectors.
