I want to pack a Raspberry Pi 2 and a uncased 2.5" HDD in one case. The HDD is connected with a SATA-to-USB-cable. It doesn't matter for me if that cable is outside of the case.

I can not find something like that. Does anyone know a solution for that?

btw: It would be nice if I could add this case to the VESA place, too.

    What does "nacked" mean? I don't understand the reference to either "nacked" or "poor" in this usage.

    Do you mean "naked"? Jan 22, 2016 at 21:09

    @buhtz In English probably uncased to mean an item without a case.

    I've seen USB-to-IDE/SATA Adapters, indeed I have one - but the unit only supplies Power to the SATA drive and uses a E-SATA signal (that has probably been converted improperly by a normal SATA-to-E-SATA adapter plate on an expansion slot on a PC). That sort of thing is not going to work on the (Raspberry) Pi as that has no SATA (the Banana Pi does but those are not a fit topic of conversation here!). Whether a true USB-to-SATA interface/adapter is available I do not know. How are you going to power the "bare" (not "naked"!) drive?

There are many options for a vesa mounted raspberry pi case, among them is this one.


However I haven't heard of any cases for the raspberry pi 2 that also hold an hdd and is vesa mountable.


This one from several years ago fits your requirements, but is for the original pi
