    transfer files from old Dell HDD to Macbook?
    I have a 30GB HDD from my old Dell laptop (Toshiba HDD2181) that I removed recently and I want to retrieve some pictures from it and put them on my Macbook.

    I did some research on the HDD and it says the interface is DMA/ATA-100 (Ultra). Is there an adapter I can buy that would allow me to convert it to mini-USB, SATA, etc? I've looked on and did numerous searches on google but no luck as of yet...any ideas?

    The easiest way I found to transfer photo's was send them to a thumb drive
    that way I could load them on more than one machine or keep a copy.
