We appear to have a DED laptop, with some rather useful stuff stuck in its hard drive. Is there any kit we can buy to mount this drive on a PC or Mac desktop?

I have an adaptor, but I leave for Austria tomorrow.

BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN YOU FIT IT. Unlike a full-size HD connector, there is nothing to protect against you fitting it slightly wrong, and putting power across the data pins. This will kill your laptop harddrive stone dead. I speak from bitter experience.

I shall certainly bear that in mind. Enjoy the trip.
