question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, I have a broken down laptop, and I would like to get the files off of the hard drive, so I was going to purchase one of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812203012 to connect it to my computer, and get the files off. Well, after taking my hard drive out, it looks like this



I even looked the exact same model up, and it looks like this



It clearly has pins, which is how you use the adapter. Since my doesn't...What can I do? Any help is greatly appreciated. I REALLY have to get these files off of this hard drive.

You need a female IDE cable . That's all. The side with the holes is for your laptop drive, and the other side is for IDE.

I could be wrong...

EDIT: Yeah, it does appear to be 40 pin so i think that's it.

It has pins they are hidden by the adapter...it goes between the laptop connection and the hd connection
