    I have an IBM Thinkpad 770 model which is completely defunct except for the hard drive. As far as im aware the hard drive from that is a 2.5" drive and my desktop runs a 3.5" drive. I have found a cable whichs is a "40-way IDC to 44-way Micro IDC with power connector" will this do the trick ? Also is the power supply for powering the laptops hard drive then supplied through the IDE cable ? And also will I have to alter any settings on my hard drive when I connect up the laptops hard drive into the tower unit of my desktop pc? Any help on this I would be exteremly grateful.
