i'll buy one of those USB harddisk casings, take out my notebook harddisk from compactdrive, plug it into the casing, and hope it'll be recognised. so the question is:

which particular brand model of budget USB notebook HDD casings should work with VIA chipset?

Try upgrading the firmware? I don't have a problem with VIA chipsets.
