    The connector shown in your third link is an adapter. It either just pulls
    off or requires the removal of a screw from each end (you photo didn't quite
    inlcude enough).

    Once the adapter is removed, the disc drive will have a standard SATA
    interface connector on it and any SATA adapter will work.

    He means any SATA HDD should work (with the adapter fitted). ;-)

    The OP stated that he wished to connect the removed drive to his desktop, so
    I meant exactly what I said.

    My bad. When you wrote "SATA adapter" (I would have said "SATA cable" as
    nothing needs to be 'adapted',) I thought you were talking the other way....
