I have a standard 2.5" tohsiba laptop drive thats broken, it clicks when trying to load Windows. So i am trying to get data off it.
I bought an adapater
with the idea of being able to put it in my computer connected to an IDE cable so I could then see if i can read the data
But, the adapater has no spare pins. All my IDE cables have a single missing pin, ie the hole is blocked up; so I can't attach the cable to the adapater without breaking one of the pins, and I don't even know which way round to put it.
Am I completly off base here? Any suggestions?
