    apple hard drive data removal
    hi. i have several of the old macbooks (white) that no longer power up but have data on them. besides going to apple and paying them to remove the data is there a rig I can buy to connect just the hard drive to so i can download the data once i remove the hard drive?

    thank you.

    Yeah, you can either get a hard drive dock like the Thermaltake BlacX or an external hard drive enclosure.

    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I have both of those devices and either one will work nicely. If a drive is very old (IDE drive) the Newer Tech will handle that as well. Not all of the drive dock devices handle those drives.
    Did you know these forums are soon to be shut down?
