Pata Hard Drive Enclosures


how do you determine what type Hard Drive Enclosure to get to convert a standard PC type Pata hard drive into a usb drive?

what confuses me is this 3.5 inch enclosure, I assume those are for the small Laptop hard drives.

Laptop drives are typically 2.5"----the standard desktop drive is 3.5"

Random link from NewEgg:

In this case, the enclosures support both PATA and SATA--(I was not able to determine this from the NewEgg site)
