you need an IDE to SATA converter or you could get a HDD Caddy and plug or IDE into that and connect via USB

The adapter noted above will work ... and is a good way to permanently connect an IDE drive to a SATA-only system.   But to do what you suggested (just get some data off the drive), this is much easier ... and is a VERY handy gadget to have (I use mine all the time):  http://www.buyextras.com/sausb20toide.html

... you don't have to open the PC or anything ==> just connect the drive you need to access [it can be IDE or SATA, 2.5" (from a notebook) or 3.5", hard drive or optical drive], plug in the power adapter, and plug the USB connector into your PC.
