I ordered a 2.5" USB caddy IDE one after being informed on here that my HDD was IDE but it doesnt fit :(
Does that mean its a SATA?
Thanks

2.5 is laptop and 3.5 computer you may be able to buy an adapter for the caddy as we have one that goes 3.5 ide to 2.5 ide they are'nt that expensive

That cable is a 2.5 to 3.5 IDE cable

The top connection is a 2.5 inch (for laptops) , the bottom connection is a 3.5 (for desktops)

You would have bought a caddy for the wrong size
