    Hi folks,

    My laptop recently died, and I'd like to salvage some information off the hard drive. I was planning to put the HD in an external HD case and connect it to another computer, but the laptop HD seems to have some different kind of power connection. Seems like it does have SATA. What kind of cord would I need to power the HD in this external enclosure? Is there anything special I should know about these laptop HDs?

    This is the hard drive:

    Thanks!

    It should just be the sata power connector, does it look like a larger version of the sata connector?
