Hi and welcome go Geeks to Go. Your best course of action is to do some searches for "hard drive enclosure". You will get lots of hits. I suggest you get one that has its own power supply and fan. I have 4 such devices that I put together myself and they all work great. I have EIDE drives, not SATA. There may be SATA enclosures available. Google and find out.
