Xp hard drive enclosure for HP Pavilion DV5000


Does anyone know the name and size of the hard drive enclosure for an HP Pavilion DV5000? I have a SATA Wire enclosure and a regular SATA Wire but neither fit the prongs on my XP hard drive. Please help me understand what I need to extract the files from this hard drive. (The prongs have two rows, unlike the newer hard drives)

  1. Best answer
    The drive is a PATA (Parallel ATA) drive, nowadays referred to simply as an IDE drive to distinguish it from a SATA drive.

    So you need an enclosure which accepts an IDE or PATA hard drive.
