The cable is a standard USB to USB Mini cable. You can buy one at any Walmart for a few dollars. You can alos get them online at any number of places. HERE is one on Amazon.
Using that cable you should be able to transfer the entire contents of the hard drive to a computer.
Please let me know if you need further help.
