Cables To Go - LAPTOP to IDE HARD DRIVE ADAPTER

I have one of similar design. They are just pieces to rewire the outputs. All you need it to plug it in and use it. I'm not too sure about the enclosure part though.

What you are looking for is a hard drive enclosure. You can find them on NewEgg for about $10 to $25. Be careful you get the right enclosure type. There are 2 criteria:

Size: 1.8" or 2.5"
Interface: PATA or SATA

External Enclosures, External Hard Drive Enclosures, USB External Enclosures at Newegg.com

Click the size you want on the left (most likely 2.5") and you will be given a bunch of choices.
