Default laptop hardrive

I just cracked open my old archos jukebox mp3 player that broke and found what i think is a 20gb laptop hard drive inside. Im fairly sure this is working perfectly and it looks like it has the connection pins for an ide cable of some sort. What i want to do is connect it up to my desktop computer and use it as another drive. If anyone knows if this is possible and what cable i need (and where to get it from would be good) that would be great

You'll have to search for one, likely at a local Computer Shop type thing; but you can get them. Can't remmember what they're called.
