This is a interesting adapter I ran across today. It looks very portable for someone to keep in there tool bag for testing hard-drives.

You can get them on Ebay for less than $8.00, sometimes several dollars less. Just make sure the package includes the power adapter as some of the cheaper ones do not. Oh, and BTW, you can also use these with a CD or DVD to use them as an external drive.

I use a similar adapter. I can use it to connect an external ide DVD-burner to my toughbooks. Even my CF-M34 mk3 (700Mhz) boots from it.

Its a LogiLink USB2.0 to IDE & SATA Adapter (AU0006D v 1.0)
