salvaging a hard drive from an mp3 player

By edpotts ·
ok so i have a broken sanyo mp3 player (it is permanently "waiting") which has a 6gb seagate hard drive inside. it seems a shame to throw away 6gb of storage space, so i took out the hard drive, but have no idea how to connect it to a computer (preferably without taking the computer to bits as its a laptop) so usb solutions or similar are preferable

Not sure what model of Seagate drive you have, so it's hard to tell you what to do. There are external hard drive cases and there are USB adapters.

Wanna tell us what drive you have (model)?

Care to tell us how old the laptop is and what OS you're running on it? Does it have USB v2.0 compatible ports?
