Question PATA/IDE 2.5" laptop hard drive connector/adapter

Good day all,

I did some searching around the forums for another question like this, but had no luck in finding any, so I am going to ask here.

I have a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion ze4805us laptop computer, and I am in need of a PATA/IDE 2.5" notebook hard drive adapter that goes into the 40-pin ATA port at the rear of the drive.

I do not know what the adapter is technically called, and it looks a little weird, but if anyone can help me find one to purchase, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks so much in advance!

Why do you need an adapter? It should have one in the case...

Wanting to connect it to your desktop?

something like these should work. - 2,5 to 3,5 hd adapter
