well it would be usb to ide, so you can use one of these http://www.maplin.co.uk/module.aspx?moduleno=35057&C=SEO&U=OldModulePage if you don't wanna buy one, you can always disconnect the cd/dvd if there is one, and plug the disk in there temporarily. good luck.

You could use something like this

http://www.amazon.co.uk/L803B-Drive-Enclosure-External-Black/dp/B000RAFFEY

Maybe there are cheaper ones around... that was 1st one i found

You can also take stuff that you need, then use the drive as an external usb drive.
