    hello all,

    Here’s my problem…I have a Samsung hard drive (HD120JI) I want to connect it to a desktop to retrieve files… from what I can tell it doesn’t have the common 44 pin connection it only has one row of 22 (I’m assuming its because it might be SATA) …I was wondering if it is in fact SATA and if a SATA to IDE adaptor would work for my issue?? Lemme kno if there is any info I left out …. Many thanks in advance
