I have a 10gb Hitachi 2.5" ata-5 HDD out of my broken portable Archos mp3 player that still works fine. I have it maxed out with around 4,000 mp3's and no way of getting to them to copy over to my new mp3 player. I tried to get one of those cases/enclosures that turn internal hard drives into external USB hard drives and it wasn't working properly. It kept freezing my comp up when I would plug it in as it kept spinning and clicking. I am pretty sure it was because the case that I bought was not for ata-5 HDD's. I can't find any of them anywhere and I do not want to buy one off ebay because of the ridiculous shipping charges. Is there any kind of way I can hook this laptop up to my computer as someone mentioned in Circuit City as a slave drive? If so what would I need for that? Thanks in advance for any help.
