Harddive Docking - Help!

Hello everyone, I need some serious help figuring out what to buy in order to copy the remaining data off of my old (not working) computer's HD. It's a "Seagate Barracuda 7200.9" 200GB, and what I'm looking for is something possibly as easy as this: Multifunction 3.5 2.5 SATA HDD Hard Disk to USB Hub Docking Station Cradle: Computers & Accessories
not sure it would work though...can anybody please give a little help? :)

Your linked devise well work for your needs. Another option would be a SATA/IDE/PATA USB adapter. This is a good tool for the PC tool kit, allows you to connect to about any kind of drive to recover data. These USB 2 adapters are pretty slow, you can get these in eSATA that's faster.

Make sure that the dock supports GPT drives. Many do not as yet.
