640 Gb Hard drive upgrade problem


I bought a Western Digital 640 Gb SATA drive from you folks in December, just getting around to upgrading. (A big project finally done Yeah!)

Problem: I had planned on using a Force Model no PHR-250CC USB 2.0-Firewire interface to clone the hard drive, but it appears that the new hard drive had a new pinout.

Possibility-I am being brain dead and if I wasn't swimming in a sea of fatigue toxins it would be easy (which is what I hope). Alternative possibility, I need to buy another interface, if so, which one(s) are needed.
