Getting Data off and Old Hard Drive

Post by BarcaKizz on Tue Feb 12, 2013 1:33 am

Hey guys.

Last month my old laptop died suddenly. No HD failures though. It was a Macbook from 2008.

I now have a new laptop but I want to get the data from my old one onto it. I was told about getting some sort of adaptor/reader which you can plug the HD into after taking it out of the old machine.

Anyone know specifically which one to get?

Cheers.

you need a Sata Cable but the type depends on what hard drive you have

Sweet. This was as much as I'd gathered, but I thought I would need to get the right type.

It is a 160GB Serial ATA 5400 rpm Hard Drive.

Any ideas?

Should this work?

that should work, btw most new laptops have two harddrive trays, you might be able to install that into your laptop.
