About the 1.8" ZIF or PIN Hard Drive Enclosure

ZIF Enclosure

This new version of the 1.8" HD enclosure connects to ZIF or PIN drives, depending on which enclosure you choose. The enclosure operates at USB 2.0 speeds and requires no additional power supply. Simply attach the hard drive and enclosure to your system via the included USB cable and you are ready to go.

Forget about tiny 2GB, 4GB, 8GB or 16GB thumb drives. How about a Palm-Drive? This enclosure provides 120+ GB in a form factor the size of a business card!

The approximate dimensions are 4 1/4" Long, 2 3/8" Wide, 7/16 " High.
It will accommodate drives with dimensions up to:


0.315" (8.0mm)


2.12" (54mm)


3.09" (78.5mm)

Not sure if your drive will fit?
Check your drive's specifications at the Toshiba, Hitachi or Samsung website.

The cable included in the kit is 3mm high on both ends.
If you require a 3mm/2mm cable, we sell them in pairs as shown below.

As a USB storage device, you can make the drive bootable! At Digital Intelligence, we use it to not only store data and applications, but also a forensically sound Win98se boot environment. Using this approach, we can boot almost any PC from the USB port into Win98se DOS and then run DOS based tools like EN.EXE, Drivespy, Ghost, Diskedit, etc. Get the suspect PC booted into a forensically sound DOS environment, and then push your images out to a high-capacity desktop hard drive connected in your system.
