Sure they exist but they are tiny (capacity) and won't go in the Showstopper without some IDE emulation/translation. The Showstopper has to be able to boot the OS from the IDE so whatever you put on there it has to be recognized by the firmware.
I think you'd be better off selling your Showstopper on Ebay and take the money you'd spend on this thing (which I doubt will actually work) and buy a 4000 or 5000 series Replay. With the newer models you can offload files to a computer over a network without touching the HD.
I guess the first test is to connect the Showstopper drive inside the enclosure, if you're able to see it in your PC you're in business. You could leave the drive inside the case or inside the Replay or get rid of the enclosure altogether and install inside a switch and the small USB controller.
