Male to male connector for hard drive

Hello,
I purchased a portable iomega hard drive(model MDHD360-UE),
and during a move it stopped working. I understand there is a way to use a card reader to slave it as a usb drive. I purchased one, but am now trying to find a male to male cord to go betwen the hard drive and the 10 in one card reader. Does anyone know where to fond such a beast? If I need to give more information let me know. Thankyou in advance.

  1. Let me see if I understand you. You have an external HDD with a broken controller (that is, the interface and not the drive itself is broken) and you need a cable to connect the HDD itself directly to your computer. Tell me if I'm wrong, but it sounds more likely that you will need a SATA cable to make the connection.
  2. Er have you removed the drive from the portable enclosure, if you have, what connector is it, sata or Ide
