Havent seen them before. You could make one though. At Radio Shack you can get a circuit board and pins to fab a board. There are many electronics catalogs that you could check for parts too (cheaper). I will check out mine later after work. I would love to see a mod like that.

the toshiba drives are a standard ATA interface. the only difference, really, is they run on 3.3v instead of the 5.v 2.5in laptop standard, or the of course the 12.v 3.5in standard

Okay, you need a voltage regulator.
