Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Ok, first of all, the hdd is ok. The pc's mb is broken so i need a way to connect the hdd externally to another pc to take out my photos, programs and so on. The problem is the interface on the hdd, it's rely weird as it was connected to a HP Pavilion DV6000. I have a normal ide sata connector but it won't work. Any help would be much appreciated. Best regards / Kent
