My laptop's finally bitten the dust since the power connector snapped and took part of the motherboard with it. I was hoping that somebody out there guide me in getting the data off the old hard drive. I thought I could buy a temporary cable to plug it to the usb slot, but can't seem to find any as they're all S-ATA leads, and the same applies for the cases. Is there an easy (and cheap!) way of recovering the data? I have pics of my kids and all sorts which I can't lose and would be grateful for your help.
The drive has the following details on it:
Part No: CA06297-B023
I'm on the lokout for a new laptop, but in the mean time can use my kids' desktop to keep going and this is where the data is to be transferred to. If it makes a difference, our desktop is a Dell Vostro 200 with a decent size laptop.
Sorry if this is an idiot's question, but I've no idea about computers!
