I use the type of adapter tha Allan referred you to all the time.
The only caution is to be really careful when attaching/removing the adapter so that you dont bend the pins on the drive.
Easies way to do this is to see if your cdrom drive on the desktop is IDE as well.
If it is, it will have a grey ribbon cable about three inces wide.
If that is the case, just temporarily disconnect the cdrom drive and attach the hard drive there.
The system should recognize it & you should be able to get your data.
If I read the label on the drive right, it was made in 2004 so it is not in warranty.
Edit: Upon re-reading "it does not work anymore"
If the drive is physically broken there is nothing you can do.
The adapter is worth a try though.
