I have a Toshiba Libretto 110ct running Windows 98 and it died.  I took the hard disk out and wanted to know if I can daisy chain it to another Pc/IDE controller and get the data off of it.  The connectors are different from the typical ide connection.

Any help would be appreciated.

    I have just erased my comment... just seen waht Callandor wrote! Thats it! Way to go. I use one of those caddies. Otherwise, there could be a better option. Get yourself an external 2.5" usb caddie. This way you have an external hdd that you can plug into any usb port.... you get the idea.
