mark, very much thanks for the response!
i think i ll go for a combination of an ata-laptop-drive, with this 
usb-case-adapter for it.
that seems cheap, and i do not need an extra power chord for the 
external drive than - which is important for me, since everything runs 
on solarpower, 12Vdc here.
