Ok, so I opened my OLD laptop, and removed useful stuff, and I'm not very good at hardware. So I need to know what kind of hard drive this is. I know its a 2.5". But is it SATA, or IDE. And will it be compatible with the enclosures that you can buy to turn it into an external Hard drive?


The strip of gold things on the top of the picture are shorter than the bottom. They are not the same size.

It's a standard 2.5" IDE drive with an adaptor, the adaptor can be (carefully) removed if you want to re-use the drive.

Thank you MrLinux. I didn't know there were adapters on this hard drive. I removed it, and now I will buy an enclosure. Thanks again!
