HI,this something that i am thinking of doing but do not know if it will work.
I have HDD from a GATEWAY GT4010 that appears has gone bad on me before i had a chance to get a external HDD
to back up HDD,what i would like to is put this HDD in the DELL E521 using a adapter that is supposed to connect
the two different that a company called COOL GEAR sells.
The HDD in the GATEWAY has a 40pin connection and the DELL has i believe SATA connection if i have it right,now if this adapter works
the way i believe it works i may get lucky and be able to down load whats on the GATEWAY HDD to the external HDD or is this just wishful
thinking on my part any other ideas on how to download from GATEWAY HDD would be appreciated,thanks.

You could consider a HDD to USB kit (USB goes into any other PC). I bought this one. It's cheap, comes with drive power supply and works fine. No installation required. Handy for accessing any HDD or DVD drive. Other examples here. Whether you can download anything rather depends on how the HDD has gone bad.
