Something like the one linked below will work for 2.5" hdd.
If it is the hdd that you have determined is the problem and not some other hardware problem, then you have the option to use a free Live Linux DVD or Flash Drive to
recover the files. Below is a link telling you how to do that using Ubuntu Live but any Live Linux CD, DVD or Flash Drive will work.

Hello bc advisor
Thank you for your reply,i am sorry to seem dim but why will this one work and not the enclosure i have ? There is nothing wrong with my hard drive it just seems the easiest way to transfer my photo's onto another computer ?
Thank you for your reply,the link you have put up just goes to Google home page

You said that the enclosure you had was not compatible...the hdd didn't fit...that's all I had to go on. From a brief search your computer is a laptop.
Laptops use a smaller hdd than desktops. So, recommended an enclosure for the smaller size...2.5".
If the hdd that you want to transfer pictures from is bootable, then why not just transfer the pics either to a flash drive or DVD and then to the other computer?
Depending on volume of pics, you can even use email to do that.
More info on exactly what you are attempting and problems encountered is always helpful to get the best suggestions.

I use this Enclosure but I'm using it without the casing. I use it mainly for Cloning the Laptop and Imaging.
The SATA Connector (blue arrow in image) is the same with standard-connector 2.5 and 3.5 SATA HDD's so you can use it interchangeably to transfer files/folders or Backup activities with Laptop's or Desktop PC's.
I like the Docking Sta design as TsVk! mentioned. I'd get one of those if I hadn't already bought a couple of Enclosures the last couple of years.
