I love to reuse old hard drives; any device that has one gets the hard drive removed before I toss the remainder in the trash. I’ve used enclosures in the past to turn an old laptop drive into a portable drive, but this USB 2.0 universal adapter cable from NewerTechnology looks pretty slick too. $24.95 gets you this USB adapter, which can connect directly to an ATA, Serial ATA, ATAPI or IDE drive. You simply plug and it plays, which could come in handy if you’re on the road and need to salvage data off a drive from a dead device.
