I pulled a Samsung HM250JI hard drive out of my dead laptop, but it appears that, while it is sata, and the number of connecters on it match up, they look like blades instead of the regular sata connectors. Below is a picture of what they look like.

They are just too long (up/down) to fit into the regular sata cable, or my external sata hard drive dock.
Anybody know a method to get this to work? I'd really hate to waste 250gb of storage.

Laptops often use a SATA adapter. You should be able to remove it by pulling on it. The standard SATA connectors will be behind it.
