Connecting laptop as external hard drive? aspire 5733-6850

AmaljaAmalja Posts: 1Member New User
I have an aspire 5733-6850. I broke the screen, and I used to be able to connect it to an external monitor to use until I got a new screen and in trying to install it myself, I broke the wires inside the laptop. Now I need to transfer the data from this laptop to a new one. A friend told me that I can get a connector cable that I can hook up to another computer and it'll just connect as an external hard drive. But for that, I need to find out what kind of hard drive I have, and what kind of cable I need to buy. Any clues on how I can do this? And is this theory that my friend has given me correct?
