Either buy a USB hard drive caddy which is designed for 3.5" drives or plug it into a friend's computer and use that. If you opt for the caddy then as a result you'll have effectively made yourself an external hard drive which is a useful thing to have. You can of course buy adaptors without a case that just plug into a SATA drive and a USB socket or better still an eSATA socket if your laptop has one.
