    Post Laptop to Desktop Hard Drive Adapters on Ebay

    I came across this on ebay http://cgi.ca.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayIS...tem=1296908543

    I know that some people were looking at using a laptop hard drive, if it works it would be worth the $11.00

    do you think you could use this to use a 3.5" HD on a laptop? and somehow get the 12V from somewhere else?

    Yeah, sure, no problem, but you would have to have the HD external...

    Errr, no I don't think so. This adapter appears to plug into a 2.5" HD and then allows a standard desktop IDE cable to plug into that, allowing you to use a 2.5" HD on a desktop, not the other way around.
