I assume that you PC is dead and you want to recover data from HDD. It may be better if you get an external HDD encloure box click here, click here, get IDE, 3.5" model

if your PC is not dead and you want to transfer files between two machines, then a usb datalink cable is what you need , cost £6.46 click here

A usb2 to ide cable is a very useful piece of kit. I have one and it enables me to connect any Hard drive cd/dvd drive to my pc or anyone elses for that matter.

BUT connecting 2 pc together no. its for connecting drives.

IF you don't have a home network then direct cable connection either by parallel or usb should work
