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 newegg.com 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.

Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
