You need a USB to SATA adaptor. I think this sort of thing is it?

if you have a sata or ide drive, it should cost about 30 to 50 dollars. In general, it is not going to be easy to completely build your own disk adapter, unless you have an electrical engineering degree. I would buy the DIY enclusure, and put a sata or ide disk in it.
