How to connect laptop HD to desktop?

Hello:

I have a few hard drives from laptops that I wanted to use in desktops but I notice the standard 40 pin IDE cables of the desktops don't fit the laptop hard drive connector.

Is there an adapter or some way to do this?

All of these HDs and desktops are 2003 to 2005 vintage.

Thank you for advice.
