I have a HTS541616J9AT00 internal hard drive that I've been trying to find a hard drive enclosure for...however, I haven't had any luck. The drive is pretty much brand new (was installed in a Dell computer back in August), but my brother has files on there he needs to retrieve and the Dell has given up the ghost. Since I've spent enough money on that laptop this year to buy a new one, I'm not interested in trying to fix the laptop, just want to pop this drive into an enclosure so he can use it as an external hard drive. According to the mfg specifications, it's an ATA-7 (ATA/133) 2.5" drive, but it seems like every enclosure I find that is ATA-7 is 3.5" (and I haven't been able to find many at all). If possible, I'd like to keep the costs as low as possible--like I said, in this one year, I've spent close to $900 on the Dell--my idiocy, lol, but I was hoping to make it last for one more year so my brother could use it until he starts undergrad. If anyone could help me out, I would really really appreciate it!
I took some pics of the hard drive (thought maybe it might be helpful)...they're uploaded at the links below:
Thank you in advance!
