    You need one of these external drive enclosures or just the EIDE to parallel/USB interface board that they have in them (if you can find it somewhere sold standalone). These external enclosures have also a mains power supply for the drive which obviously you don't need in the car.
    I would suggest you go for the USB 2.0 version if possible or the USB 1.1 and I would NOT suggest the parallel connection- it is just too slow.
