Reading a Gateway desktop hard drive

Just depends on what type of system you both have. If your's is a standard pc, it's probably an ide cable connection. If his is different, it is most likely a serial ata or sata drive. converters are available all over the place. Go to and click on the parts or ebay page link on the first page and do a search. Best bet first is to either scan or get me a picture of the 2 connectors so I can determine which ones you need. You can contact me at
