Ive spent so much time searching online with no answer and also brought to Geek squad who was no help...regarding my HP Livestrong laptop from ~12 years ago. Im not much of a computer guy so maybe the answer is obvious to some. 


Need help with extracting HD, it doesnt seem like a standard size, see pics. The screen went out a while back, doesnt work with external display, otherwise still turned on and loaded (screen was ever so faint which is how I knew it was on, but not enough to see or navigate, so HD still good). So I removed HD and tossed the rest. Bought some different universal hd reader/adapters but none fit. All I know is that it is a "Fujitsu Mobile MHU2100AT - hard drive - 100 GB - ATA-100"


Please if someone can refer me to the correct reader or an ide/sata -to- (whatever mine is) adapter so I can extract the contents, I would be very grateful.


Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi :welcome:


The HDD its IDE type, to connect to some IDE -> USB adapter you need to remove first the connector used to connect to the laptop interface. Push gently in both sides to avoid bend the pins.


You can see the HDD without the adapter on this image http://www.chip.de/i..._2f16866600.jpg
