I have a dead 40 Gig IBM Deskstar 2000 model. Made in Hungary.

I need to try to get info from it if poss and wondered if anyone has any experience of ATA to USB connectors?

Would this be suitable to TRY to get info into new machine or do they have problems.

PS The hard drive wouldn't boot up and I suspect its terminal with the scratch scratch sound it gives but I figure to try shaking it, banging it, turning it upside-down MIGHT work.
