You could get a USB hard drive case and make it a portable HDD...

Sitecom MD-209 USB 2.0 Hard Drive Case 2.5" SATA : novatech.co.uk : NOV-MD209

just an example, but it would have more uses then, instead of just in your machine.

Make sure you have a SATA power cable available, if you havent got one available there are Molex to SATA converters they normaly go for 2 or so.
