This is the kind of thing im looking for... So the 12 pins should be able to connect to something like this?? Is it classed as an IDE connection??


Thanks - if i had more time or cared more about this HDD, i would definitely try this...

It looks to be able the size of an IDE connection. I'm assuming the usb is for power and the IDE connection is for data. Does it spin up or do anything when you connect it via usb?

That converter won't work on those 12 pins as it's meant for the top drive pictured below:
