    Default laptop HDD to PC IDE.

    Ok as above says i have this working fine, got my old laptop HDD sitting in my PC as we speak.

    Now all i want to do is the other way round, i want to use a IDE Hdd in my Laptop.

    I searched google quick but came up with **** all.. only the other way round to what i need.

    Anyone done this or know where i can buy a converter?

    There is an adapter available from Maplins that allows you to connect an IDE HDD to a USB port.
