    The list, last I checked, doesn't have the qualifier of "for people who wish to purchase new!" The list covers HDs (older and newer models) and the enclosures (older and newer models). I have a Mad Dog USB/Firewire enclosure I bought several years ago; I tested it as it was equipment ON HAND and it worked fine. I later opted for the smaller, sleeker WD 2.5 500gb HD.

    Yes

    I will tell you that yes you can use an internal drive as an external. I am using a western digital 500gig internal hardrive as an exturnal but i am using a sata dock station that we got for 30$ on newegg. It has worked great for the 3 months that I have used it.
