Hello All,
I had a Dell Inspiron 9100 Laptop that had a 2.5" Fujitsu hard drive. I got a standard 2.5" to 3.5" IDE adaptor. However, it doesn't fit my laptop hard drive because the connectors are different. I can't seem to find the connectors on my laptop hard drive anywhere on the web and it seems to be very different from the connectors on other 2.5" hard drives I see on the web. Here is an image of the connectors on my laptop hard drive Posted Image and here is the adaptor I got from amazon http://www.amazon.co...ef=oss_product. Please do let me know what sort of adaptor should I get to connect this 2.5" harddrive to my desktop

AHA! that's why it doesn't look right....the thing with the pins on it...that's screwed on to the hard drive isn't it? like if you flip that drive over. there's 4 to 6 screws on the underside along the perimiter right?
