I am guessing that he has the bare drive with a red SATA data cable and an IDE molex power connector. At least, I hope so.
The simplest thing to do is to open up the computer and install the drive in the computer, then transfer the files. Next would be to buy another USB drive enclosure, but you would need to make sure the internal cables matched exactly.

Yes, I did an extensive research and concluded with a usb to sata/ide cable which I decided to buy immediately!
Thanks for the reply
