Hi. We have an HP laptop computer that has an IDE HDD that we want to
recover data from. We must do this by booting to a regular cabinet model
computer that will be directly connected to the laptop's HDD via one of
the regular computer's IDE channels. Of course we will boot to the OS of
the regular computer, not the OS of the laptop HDD.
Is there an adapter connector that will connect a vintage 1998 IDE (DMA
mode-2) ribbon cable of a regular cabinet model PC to the HDD of a 2002
Hewlett-Packard laptop model (HDD probably manufactured by Fujitsu)? If
so, then who has them for sale?
