notebook drive adapter?

  1. Hi all,
    Is there any kind of notebook drive adapter kit so that could connect
    one to my desktop?

    It would really be helpful in trying to recover or transfer data.

  3. Just be careful to either get one that is keyed, or that is easily marked as
    to what is pin 1. Since the ribbon cable for laptop hard drive transfers
    both data *and* power, the drive will be fried if you reverse it!

  4. Thanks, Barry. It was $3.95 from compgeeks.

  5. It does on some drives, at least..My friend fried an accountant's hard drive
    doing just that! I guess it's possible that I simply misunderstood him

  6. That was my guess also. I'm surprised that someone hasn't verified it.
