The that I bought costs $29 - a bit of a splurge, but it's easy to set up and use. Just take out the screws at the back of the unit and slide out the drive carrier. Plug in the hard drive's power and data connections, screw the drive into the carrier, slide the carrier back into the enclosure and replace the screws in the back. Next, attach the included USB cable, plug in the unit's AC adapter and flip on the On switch. The system will detect the unit and set it up as an additional hard drive - in my case, the F: drive.

If it puts up a little struggle, rock the card back and forth a few times to work it loose. Be careful, because you can easily damage the motherboard with too much pressure. Then slide the new card in. No need to replace the arm that locks the cards into place just yet - we'll be adding more cards here later on in the upgrade.
