I have a StarTech sata dock, remove my drive from the laptop, and plug it into the dock. Voila! Instant connection to the desktop. The doc has 2 ports that handle both 2.5 and 3.5" drives, as well as esata and USB connections. Other than the interface cable (the dock comes with both esata and usb cables), no cables (power or otherwise) are required. Of course it has a power brick, but the dock deals with the drive connections internally. Just slide the drive into one of the ports, turn on that port, and assuming you already have the dock connected to the desktop, it is live.

Glad to help and that you got it working. I use this dock a lot to remove viruses from client system drives, as well as just to plug in a backup disc to make system images and such. Works a treat. I use the esata connection instead of USB because it is a LOT faster! :-)
