I've just disconnected a laptop hard drive from a ruined laptop. I want to connect it to my PC so that I can recover the document files. What is the recommended type of cable to use so that I can connect it with a USB port?
Unfortunately the Dynamode USB 2.0 SATA 2.5 inch External Hard Disk Caddie
does not interface with the laptop's HD. Fortunately I was able to buy it at a reduced price.
It fits inside the enclosure, but the Laptop's interface is about 4.8cm. The interface on the Dynamode USB 2.0 SATA 2.5 inch External Hard Disk Caddie is only 3.5cm and is made for a different type of pin.
Can anyone recommend a cable with a suitable interface? The Laptop's HD is Fujitsu model MHT2040AH IP, IBM P/N 13N6718 40GB.
If you had got the a adapter you would now have accsess to your hard-drive but I am partly responsible for assuming that the connection was Sata as opposed to IDE. So either get another caddy or an adapter.
If you only spent £4.40 that's a pretty good deal and no doubt will be useful in the future when you get a new PC or give it someone for Xmas.
