You can get just cables, but you are probably best buying a USB caddy to put the drive in. You need to determine whether the old drive is IDE or SATA type and get a cable or caddy for that type.

If you just want to use the space on the old drive for storing things you might be better off buying a complete external drive - they are not expensive - see click here)

There's a dual "Caddy" here which accepts both SATA and IDE drives click here

BTW, as it is from a desktop PC, if you are going down the caddy route, the disk is almost certainly a 3.5" form factor (laptop disks are 2.5" form factor).
