Connecting Laptop HD to recover files

by nortarbe / July 15, 2011 3:09 AM PDT

I have a Toshiba NB205 that wont turn on any more. Other blogs report this as a common problem. I believe the HD is still good, so where can I get an external case/cable to plug it into another computer using the USB so I can try to recover files? HD info: HDD : 5K500.B-160 Hitachi HTS54501689A300 5400RPM 160 GB SATA 3.0 Gb/s
Many thanks....
