click here this is what you want and you can use your HD as an external disk for backups afterwards so that you do not lose your info. At under £12 it is a bargain.

I think click here may help you. It has both sata and ide interface. You can simply connect your old harddisk to ide or sata interface and connect the usb connect to your computer. Its easy to use.
