it a passport type drive? 2.5"?

 

if its just the usb connection, unscrew the hdd from the case and unplug it, then cop one of these from amazon and you should be good to go

(not that exact one because i havnt done any research, just have a browse for a 2.5 enclosure sata or ide, depending on your drive)
