    Your only option right now is pull the HD off the laptop and put it on an external enclosure and hook up to other computer to transfer. Obviously you can use 2.5" to 3.5" adapter instead of the enclosure.

    NO other option will work for you unless the laptop is on.

    Just for future reference, the cable you're remembering is often called a "LapLink" cable. It is a null modem cable (serial cable with one end's recieve and transmit lines switched), normally bundled with the software LapLink.

    Not going to help you right now, though,

    yep - head out to your local computer store and get a 2.5" external USB closure.

    external enclosure = $40
    this will give you a hard case to have the hard drive kept in....

    OR
    2.5" to 3.5" adapter = $10...
    this will allow you to temporarily connect ANY laptop drive (including DVD or CDROM) to the desktop IDE and power cables...

    How interesting. I had to do this today in order to backup a client's hard drive.
    Works great, but I think the hard drive might be pooched.
    Meh. It's under warranty.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
