I've rescued a 250 gig hard drive from a now defunct laptop. Can this be used as an external drive somehow, no doubt using usb. And where might I purchase anything needed i.e caddy leads etc, please
Check it's a Sata or ide drive the have a look at something like http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nbsbnoss_2/280-4777431-3342152?url=search-alias%3Dcomputers&field-keywords=2.5%22+enclosure
Couldn't get the link correct, try this.
, Ah... how to I tell which drive it is Sata or Ide. Its from a Acer 5920 laptop
Thank you, will give it a go seeing that they are so cheap. AB68
It will be a SATA drive caddy here
thanks fruitbat, have ordered. AB68
Update..........All done and working, so I have now an external drive of 230gig, all for £6.98. Not bad eh? One more question how do yo signify that a post has been completed successfully. A long time ago there used to be a box to tick as completed.
Just click in the grey column to the right of the Post that solved your problem.
That shows easily to other people searching the forum for answer, what exactly worked to overcome the problem.
Hi Fruitbat. Well, all the boxes have a tick against them already except the initial post AB68
