If you have a desktop system, you could connect the drive to one of the 
IDE connectors on that.  Most desktops have a 2 to 4 IDE connectors.  If 
you all IDE connectors are occupied, you can temporarily unplug one of 

You don't even have to take the time screw it in properly, just leave it 
hanging loose.  The only work is to open the case.
