Continuing to search I see  the price of a usb kit is probably no more 
than the wires needed. It also keeps my fumbling fingers out of the 
works! And enables me to deal with the laptop drive. So thanks to the 
American Mr Fixit whose video showed that option. Prices seem to start 
from about £16 [around $22]. I have the old drive now sitting before and 
staring balefully at me.

The kittens seem to be finding homes :-)
