I don't understand what kind of hard drive enclosure to get for my Fujitsu MHZ2160BH-G2 hard drive. It's a 2.5" SATA drive, so I bought a 2.5" SATA enclosure off eBay. But the enclosure arrived, and the two sets of teeth (Sata Power and Serial Data, for the longer set and shorter set, respectively) are just too thin/flat/narrow for the 'teeth' coming out of the Fujitsu MHZ2160BH-G2 model drive. My drive has 'higher' teeth, thicker, less narrow, so they need a thicker 'plug.' But I don't know what type of drive this is refereed to as, which I need to know for a new eBay search. Here is my drive as seen on newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822116093

Unfortunately the hard drive's connections are like these thick blades, that don't slide/fit into the thin slot of the enclosure's slot.

i think that maybe the hdd has an adapter on it to connect to the laptop motherboard that need to be removed first , maybe

I checked, but I don't seem to be able to remove anything like such an adapter from the mobo. But is there a particular kind of adapter I could search for on eBay that would do the trick?

none that i know of, i guess there is no adapter on theharddrive ,do you have a camera you could use to take a picture of the end of your hdd and post it here ,the picture in your link of newegg doesn't show the plugg end of the drive.as i said before to thebest of my knowledge there is onle one size sata connection for 2.5" hdd ,but i could be wrong
