Hi
I was wondering if there is any way that one can take the hard drive from an old Apple Laptop (Clamshell Ibook (missing a power supply, Powerbook (1st Generation-powers up only when it wants to) and connect it to a MacBook Pro via USB for data retrieval. I know this question may be a bit far fetched by I believe there is such a USB cable for retrieving data from PC hard drives.
Thanks in advance.
J.

If you want to make the old drive a more permanent backup, you can put it into an enclosure, where it'll be a little more secure, but it'll function the same way.
