IDE to USB adapter
« on: October 04, 2013, 09:53:22 PM »
Does anyone have an IDE to USB adapter that I could borrow? My old laptop has finally decided to kick the bucket. It was on its last legs for a few months, and a little tumble off the bed has broken the already loose power connector from the motherboard meaning it can no longer charge.

Not too fussed, but would like to be able to retrieve all my files from the hard drive. I used to have one of these IDE to USB adapters to do the same thing with my old desktop PC but got rid of it because I used it once and didn't see me using it again!

Don't want to fork out the money to get another one for a one-time use again, so thought I'd see if any of you guys have one you'd be willing to loan for a day or so.
