A sata cable is only good if you have a desktop to plug the hard drive into as a second drive as it will need a power source. If not you will need an enclosure, preferably with a seperate power cable which plugs into a wall outlet.
I've had mixed results from enclosures that only use the usb socket to power them. They often don't get enough voltage.
An e-sata version will be better than usb also, if your laptop supports it.
Hope that helps!

I really don't know and is but an assumption.
