Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite P105-S6104 Notebook ?

Hard drive adaptor

\015 Toshiba P105-S6104 hard drive appears to have a different type of connector attached to it so I cannot connect it to a 44 pin USB connector to read the drive.\015

Answers :

Your laptop HDD uses a newer connection type called SATA. The one you are used to using is called IDE. They do make adapters to go from one to the other but they are hard to find and not very reliable (sometimes just dont work).
\015\012
\015\012You can find a 2.5" (laptop size) hard drive enclosure for SATA to USB at almost any electronics store.
\015\012
\015\012Double check your motherboard (on your desktop if thats what you are using to read the drive) for SATA connectors on it. Many computers have been using SATA almost as a standard since about 2004-2005, but some may not still have it.
\015\012
\015\012The reason for the new type of connection is faster data transfer speeds.
