Is there a USB adapter that I can install the hard drive into

This machine refuses to start even after trying the bridge the power pads on the logic board. It has other issues.

So, now I hope I have the option of taking the hard drive out of the machine and installing it in a USB adapter case.

I have an old USB adapter case with an old Mac laptop hard drive in it. I have been using it for many years. But the pin design on this machines hard drive does not match the socket on the USB adapter case.

Is there a USB adapter case that I put this hard drive into and access from another machine (another Mac)?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I should have done some Googling first. I found several commercial

candidates. This drive appears to be 2.5 SATA.

Yes, I wish I'd seen this before I bought an enclosure from OWC macsales.

But I like the idea of the hard drive protected inside a case.

OWC makes a nice 2.5" SATA case. Did you get a 3.5" drive case by mistake?
