  1. Sorry, I should have posted this thread in this section of the forum, so please excuse this duplication.

    I have a serial ATA hard drive (Western Digital WD2000, 200 GB) that has data I need to access. I have an external hard drive enclosure with an older ATA connection (used to house a Hitachi Deskstar, 120 GB). Is there a way to access the serial ATA hard drive using this enclosure? Is there some sort of converting cable available? Any help or info on this would be greatly appreciated!
