Thanks Fruit Bat, but can you recommend which caddy I would need for this hard drive. I bought this one recently and it doesn't work.

It probably works but windows can't see it.

read the link I posted to find drivers / software to read the disk.

You bought the wrong adapter so that's why it doesn't work.

You may need to pop into your local Mac store and ask them for advice.

Thanks Secret-Squirrel, I though this might be the case. I'm presuming that because it's a drive used by Apple that it is therefore proprietary and I will need to speak to them about it. Damn it!
