Your best option would be to pick up an Apricorn DriveWire universal drive adapter. This way, it doesn't matter what kind of drive you want to attach to your USB port since it will take laptop and desktop IDE and SATA drives. It runs between $30-$40 and is available through CDW and Dell. You may be able to find it at other locations as well.
