My old computer, an eMachines running Windows ME, stopped working a number of years ago, and I am now trying to connect its hard drive (which has been removed from the case/tower) to my laptop running Windows Vista. It seems that the hard drive is of the IDE type, given that it has pins on the side. My understanding so far is that I will need both a power adapter and a USB connector in order to connect the hard drive to the laptop so that I can access my old files. Is this correct, and if so, does this eBay auction have everything I would need?
I really appreciate any input, and I'll be happy to provide any other information if needed.
