I need an external enclosure for a HDD from an old laptop...

Retired a laptop a few years ago, now I want to use its HDD as an extra external hard drive.

I'm having a problem finding an enclosure for it.

It is a Toshiba MK1031GAS HDD 100gb 2.5" drive. Here a photo...

Can anyone suggest where I can find an enclosure with that male pin configuration?

Thanks...

It's a standard 2.5" IDE/PATA interface, enclosures that fit it are cheap and abundant. Check your local computer store or shop online at TigerDirect.

P.S. If you are confused by the angled part - it's just an adapter, carefully pull it off the drive and you will see a standard 2.5" IDE connector.

That was the problem, the adapter...removed it and it fits into the enclosure I bought earlier.

Thanks...
