Hard drive data transfer to another laptop? HELP

compaq 6270s
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I am nnot sure if this is the right board, but here goes.

 

I have a compaq 6270s. It was only a cheap backup for some files and office work. However recently the laptop took a bit of a bump and I am almost certain the hard drive has failed. Now I have another cheap replacement coming. The harddrive of the laptop can be easily removed. I wanted to know if it would be possible to transfer the data or at least some of it to my new computer and if so if there is a cheap piece of equipment that I can just plug the harddrive into and then connect it via USB to the laptop and just transfer like you would with any USB stick?

 

Because the Compaq laptop won't boot up, there is nothing I can do from that angle however a quick search of Amazon showed all these results...

the first few seem as simple as plugging the harddrive in and connecting it via USB.

 

Obviously the harddrive is not working to the point of booting up the laptop but might it still have the individual files I want? And secondly is the harddrive to USB as simple as I described.

 

Thanks for your help.

@Tech-user93

 

Very simple, one of the following enclosures can do the job:

You can re-use it many times.

Hard drive data transfer to another laptop? HELP

Hi thanks for your reply. I donj't quite understand those. I'm in the UK so that's why I used the amazon link. Would one of the things in the link be ok. Is it as simple as plugging it into the adapter and then plugging the usb into my laptop??
