My MacBook Pro just died and needs to be sent to Apple for servicing. But I have critical files on its hard drive which have not yet been backed up. So I need to get them off of it before I send the computer in, just in case Apple replaces the hard drive or loses my data. (The hard drive should be fine, laptop died from something else.)

I have a Mac Pro and Power Mac G5, both of which have spare SATA bays. Does anyone here know if the ports on a 2.5" SATA drive, like what's in my MacBook Pro, will fit the cables from my Mac Pro?

It just needs to fit long enough for me to pull my files off, then I'll return the drive back to MacBook Pro for servicing. Obviously it won't be a snug fit... just so long as the cables fit.

Anyone know if this'll work?

Thanks!
Richard
