    so just put it in caddy then you can connect to any computer? any thing else needed?

    If you go on ebay and look for item number 110620054110 it is a SATA drive for £3.15

    and item number 110620054108 is for the IDE version for £3.15

    If you type in the model number of your hard drive in google it should tell you what drive you have so you can buy the right one

    Now you know its IDE, just buy the IDE one i posted form ebay, and get a USB cable and can plug it into any PC. All you need to do it unscrew 2 screws connect the HD to the caddy you have just unscrewed then pop it in the caddy and screw 2 screws back up and use
