    Retired a laptop a few years ago, now I want to use its HDD as an extra external hard drive.

    I'm having a problem finding an enclosure for it.

    It is a Toshiba MK1031GAS HDD 100gb 2.5" drive. Here a photo...

    Can anyone suggest where I can find an enclosure with that male pin configuration?

    Thanks...:wavey:

    P.S. If you are confused by the angled part - it's just an adapter, carefully pull it off the drive and you will see a standard 2.5" IDE connector.

    That was the problem, the adapter...removed it and it fits into the enclosure I bought earlier.

    Thanks... :thumbsup:
