I bought a universal SATA/IDE usb connector cable but it didnt fit.

I want to see if the hard drive still works by plugging it into another laptop via usb,

I found these which appear to have the connection I need

Im not sure which is best?
it could be the drive is bad as it can't be seen in the laptop or the docking station you just got. try another drive in the docking station if you have one and see if that gets recognized.

I have successfully used the hub to check another drive so oscer1 you were right, the first drive I wanted to see is dead.

thanks all for your input
