    Seagate internal HDD to USB query

    Hi guys, I have an old internal Seagate HDD Model ST3160023A 7200.7 160gb that was taken out of my old PC.
    I can't remember what i had on it.
    I now have a new PC and it wasn't fitted into it.
    Is there anyway to connect it up externally to USB with conversion USB/Power cables etc so I can see what is on the HDD?
    Thank you

    You could get an IDE or EIDE USB hard drive adapter. Something like this:

    Orico has wonderful external cases. website is a bit confusing. Unfortuanately they have no pdf-list of all their stuff. comparing, going trough on website is pain-but worthful. I have the flat usb-esata-enclosure 6518 series. in the shops we have the vertical ones only.
    take care and maybe aks here how to work with external drives. i once made a mistake, not knowing how to work with these data-system went corrupt.
    if i were you i would shut down Chdsk at start until you can see data.
