which usb adapter/connector will fit my Toshiba HDD2J95 hard drive

I have removed the hard drive from my laptop because it won't load and the laptop cannot see the drive.
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,
pics attached

many thanks

I am so grateful to you, I had emailed a couple of ebay sellers to ask compatibility in the past few weeks but they dont reply.

Hi,
You might just consider a hdd enclosure so at the least the hdd is protected because they do put out some heat and the enclosure will make the hdd more secure from movement too.
The data and power connection do look standard except for the additional 4pin Molex power port on it :/
Could just a an alternative power connection ?

Thanks for the enclosure suggestion but they dont seem to show the actual connection ie 22pins, and I have already bought one SATA adapter which doesnt fit by 22 pins which mine requires.

I found these which appear to have the connection I need

Im not sure which is best?

Hi,
Well at least that one will be some what secure and not just sitting on a desk.....
Like I said it's likely to get hot because there is no fan blowing on it like being installed in a machine.

Thanks for your advice, I wont be running the set up for any length of time other than to see if I can access the drive and copy the files.
