    connect dying SATA drive to another computer

    My computer died. I pulled the drive out and was able to connect it to a friends computer to see if I could still get the data. I was. but I couldn't spend too much time on that computer so i have the drive back and have basic dell computer at my disposal. problem is can't connect the SATA drive to it because the power connectors don't match.
    so is there a cheap way to connect this drive to this computer using usb?

    thanks

    something like this would do the job. What's your definition of cheap?

    Love the site and use it often.

    Provided PriceGrabber.Com SATA External Enclosure search as well to provide some alternates.

    I personally use this and highly recommend both the website (if you're inside the US) and the product. Uses USB 2.0 and is easy to set up.
