If the power plug on the drive doesn't work, putting it into an external case is pointless.

Hello, quick question: I have a totally broken IBM laptop, and I've removed the hard drive, which is a 40GB Hitachi Travelstar 5400RPM ATA/IDE: Exact model#: HTS541040G9AT00 I'd like to copy the...


Yes! There is such an adapter. Look here for IDE/SATA to USB: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2329300&CatId=3770

Obviously, you don't have to buy this product or buy from Tiger Direct; this is just an example of the type of product you're looking for.

If you're comfortable working inside your desktop, then you should check out this product which is much cheaper: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2329310&CatId=3770

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

My drive is fine but my laptop died. I am looking for a compatible laptop that I can plug my drive into to recover the data.


An easier way of doing this is purchasing a 2.5" USB external casing (it's a cheap option too). You can then connect it to another computer via USB and backup your data. From what I can see it's an IDE drive rather than SATA, so make sure you get an IDE compatible casing, if you chose to do this.

Here is a good example of one:

No power to hitachi drive even with "toaster-like" help


You may want to remove the drive and place it into a PC with the correct interface SATA or IDE.

If the PC can read it then the issue is with the enclosure and not the drive.

Hi,

No the drive is not customized at all. It is a standard SATA Data and Power connector. However, if it was already mounted in a laptop chances are the laptop manufacturer may have put an adapter on the connector end to allow for tight right angle insertion into the laptop chassis which isn't possible with the stock connectors without leaving the drive loose in it's slot.

If this is the case grabbing the connector and pulling straight away from the drive should pop it loose and reveal the stock SATA connectors under it.

If you're having troubles removing this peice, comment back with the make and model# of the laptop it came out of and I'll see if I can pull a diagram for you.

Backing up the Hard Drive


I take it your hard drive is IDE. Most enclosures only support 3,5" inch harddrives with either SATA or IDE interfaces. A notebook's HDD can have the IDE interface but it's way smaller than the standard.

There is an option however, it isn't necessarily an enclosure. You can look for the A.C. Ryan uDrive. It's a USB device which allows you to connect harddisks or optical drives from three different interfaces without the hassle of building in the drive in an enclosure.

If this is what you need, check this page:
[A.C. Ryan uDrive]

You'll need to connect your harddrive to the 2,5 inch drive connector on the device.

I hope this is what you were looking for.
Let me know if this solved your problem.

Greetings,
