I'm trying to access a hard drive (Hitachi Travelstar Model: IC25N040ATCS04-0) recovered from my stolen laptop. It was quick formatted and I am trying to get it connected to my other laptop. It says it's an ATA/IDE drive, so I purchased an IDE external enclosure to USB, but the couplings are wrong. The External case wants the IDE pins, but the drive itself looks like it is female and ports with a long slot (similar to SATA, but with the IDE pins, I think).

Any help?

It doesn't look anything like that. It's more of the connection from, say, a serial card or video card, only smaller (the receiving end on the drive).

Ah haha. Yea, that's it. I removed the adapter. I tried earlier but didn't give it enough of a tug... serves me right for being ginger with it. Thanks!
