A friends old Pismo Powerbook recently gave up the ghost and we'd like to salvage the contents of the hard drive (20GB). I had an old external chassis (for 3.5" IDE drives) and the connectors dont match up (although they are very similar). It's been so long since I used IDE/PATA that I cant remember what fits what in terms of desktop/portable - so .... As I dont have a 2.5" external chassis - should I try to find an IDE to SATA adaptor ? (and get a new portable SATA chassis that I can use in future) or .. try to find an old IDE/PATA portable chassis just to salvage the data on the drive. I do have an original AppleTV (160GB) that is PATA I believe, but doubt it will help in this scenario ... Please let me know if there's anything obvious I'm forgetting (it's been a long time!) Any help would be much appreciated, cheers !
