Hello and thanks for looking.

I need to find an adapter or enclosure for my sata laptop hard drive to get all the files off it because the motherboard is dead. I've now bought two sata adapters, both of which are incorrect fits for the hard drive. Below I have posted photos of the hard drive information, the end of the hard drive that needs to fit into an adapter / enclosure, and the sata enclosure I have just purchased that is incorrect. Thanks ahead of time for your time and info.

hard drive / info:

end of the hard drive:

wrong sata enclosure / adapter:

if you'd like to see the specs page for the laptop it came out of, the link is here: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ca/en/ho/WF06b/12139188-78299199-78299212-78299212-78299212-81749852-81978909.html?dnr=1

The drive still has the adapter fitted to plug it into the motherboard. Removing this will reveal the standard SATA connector - you may need to remove the drive from the tray if the adapter is part of it.
