This model uses a 1.8" drive with either a ZIF or pin header connection. Some SATA to USB adapters offer the needed interface. Your other choice here is to find an adapter cable to connect the drive to the adapter.

Here's the IFIXIT guide you'll need to follow: MacBook Air Models A1237 and A1304 Hard Drive Replacement.

Here's one 1.8" to USB adapter: Amazon UK
