My gf's laptop died. I removed the HD (sata) but now need a cord so I can turn it into a USB drive and take off her info.
Exactly what type of cord do I need? I don't want the whole enclosure...

I am partial to this one, which has saved me on several occasions. It also supports laptop and desktop drives (but only hard drives):
That said, why wouldn't you want to put the drive in a permanent enclosure and use it as an external backup for a new laptop? It would also be the cheapest option.
