USB 2.0 to IDE Hard Drive Adapter
The USB 2.0 to IDE adapter allows you to connect one ATA or ATAPI mass storage device, such as a hard drive, CD-ROM, CD-R/RW, or DVD-ROM drive to your computer through a USB port.
Looking for a USB to IDE adapter for your laptop hard drive? Simply add the 2.5" to 3.5" IDE converter to your order.
The USB to IDE adapter is six inches long. If you want it to go farther, just add a USB extension cable to your order.
Remember how difficult it used to be to add a hard drive? You had to shut off the computer, remove the case, and plug the hard drive in to the motherboard - then you had to worry about whether or not the computer would reboot with the new drive installed. Now all you have to do is plug this adapter into a USB port and attach the hard drive to the adapter.

Save money and get the USB to IDE adapter with included 3.5 to 2.5 inch converter, if you're intending to go to a 2.5-inch IDE connector.
The first two hard drives I tried to read nothing happened. The rest worked fine. Came on my computer as drives with letters. Was able to retrieve files I wanted and the erase all info.
This is a great product! It worked exactly as advertised, and allowed me to get precious files off a hard drive of a broken (would not startup) PC. Would have cost much more to have this done professionally. With this adapter I was able to retrieve and save the files myself for a lot less. Thanks, Sewell Direct!
