I've just taken a hard drive out of a Sony mini laptop which is about 6 years old and will not boot. I wanted to put the hard drive into an enclosure to get the data from it but I cannot find out what kind of connection I need.
There is a photo of the connection end of the drive here: click here
Can anyone tell me what sort of enclosure I need; it seems to be neither sata nor IDE.
If the hard drive has a model number on it, that would help us confirm the connector type. I have a feeling it looks like a standard laptop IDE connector though- possibly with some kind of adapter attached(?). Usually laptop hard drives have a standard connection, it's just the laptop manufacturer hook those connections up in different ways.. (just to be confusing).
