    I just had a laptop hard drive die on me, so I was going to take it out and connect it up to an external usb case.

    I noticed that it would not connect to the standard ide ribbon cable.

    Where can I find an adapter for it?

    I'm not sure what keywords to google for.

    Click for more activation options, then activate by telephone. Run the keygen.
    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Sorry for the late response. It is on the verge of being dead. It will boot in the laptop once every six times.

    I was going to save the mydocuments folder.

    oh, makes sense, but also before you trash it, I was having those problems too with a hard drive, and after defragging, scanning again and again, I actually found no problems, so I zeroed the drive completley, not the first and last million sectors, then entire drive to 0's and its working perfectly now, and btw thanks clocky all is well.
