Hello,

I'm trying to recover data off of a dead Samsung 2.5" drive with an Ultra ATA/100 interface (from my Dell XPS M140 laptop). I was looking for an enclosure I could plug it into with a USB connector. But all of the 2.5" enclosures seem to have IDE interfaces. Will this work with the Ultra ATA/100 interface ?

IDE and Ultra ATA/100 are one and the same thing as far as the physical interface goes. It's SATA that is the new interface.

Good luck with your recovery
