Hi BlackNight,

The connectors are not interchangeable therefor you wont be able to plug an ATA to a SATA. If I am not mistaken, you need the enclosure's connector to look like this right?

If so, then yes, you will need to replace the HDD enclosure for a IDE/ATAPI connector, similar to this one, as this is for the macbook pro range.

One more thing, the enclosure that you bought, is it a 9.5mm or a 12.7mm one?
