I can't find a compatible external enclosure for my old apple laptop hard drive.


Apple HDD Firmware 2007
HDD: 5K250-160
Model: HTS542516K9SA00
5400 RPM
5V 700mA DC 160GB SATA
2.5inch AT 9.5mm

So I ordered a couple which I thought was going to work, It didn't =(

Thanks in Advance

I would imagine any of these would work. I purchased a cheap one (can't remember the name) off Amazon for an IDE drive out of an old windows far no issues.

I know you want to get it from Amazon due to the credit, but this is the one I would recommend: USB 2.0 Bus Powered Portable Enclosure Serial-ATA 2.5" NoteBook Hard Drive Solution
