Hi, recently my lenovo T61's video card fizzled out right after the warranty expired. I have information on the laptop's hard drive that i need to get off of it. I have a hard drive enclosure for my old hp laptop's hard drive but the two drive have different connectors. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction to find a lenovo T61 hard drive compatible external hard drive enclosure.
The hard drive is a 100 GB 7200 RPM drive

There is a lot to choose from. Any USB SATA external hard drive enclosure should work. Since i don't live in the US i don't know where the best place to buy such a enclosure would be in your case. If you cannot find any maybe someone else that live in the US could help you out.

you just need a 2.5 inch SATA hdd enclosure, you can get them in many computer stores for around between 10 to 30 USD average.
I'll give it a shot i'm not sure if they are all the same seeing as the 2.5 hdd enclosure for my old hp has different connectors than the lenovo hard drive in question. I'll try best buy tomorrow and see if they have the right enclosure

If the internal 2.5" HD for your HP computer got a different kind of connector is has to be because it's a ATA and not SATA HD. The ATA connector are different, but in this case you just have to find a SATA 2.5" enclosure and it should work fine.
