I’m hoping someone could tell me how i can identify if the drive inside the many variations of ‘passport’ ‘my passport’ ‘my passport elite’ ‘my passport se’ ‘my book’ etc. have a standard ‘non-proprietary interface’. It seems some have a standard sata connection and others only have the usb connection and some pins in the back. I love the form factor of the ‘my passport’ but i do want to be able to connect it directly to an internal sata port on spare netbook if it should need some repairs / data recovery. The goal is to be able to look at the box on the store shelf and know which type of drive I’m look at slash maby purchasing.
Thanks in advance.
