Still a weirdo, after all these years

Hooking up a desktop hard drive to a laptop

I want to take out the hard drive from my Dell Desktop computer and connect it to my laptop to see whats on it. I know I need a cord that goes to the USB port and an outlet for the power source, but I can't recall the actual type of cord I need. Anyone know the actual name?

Also, I need a hard drive key, but I don't recall getting one with my desktop, in fact, its been 7 years so I wouldnt know where it was anyway. Anyone know where I can get one? Are they different for every model or is a one size fits all deal?

Thank you.
