Attempting to plug my old hard drive into an enclosure, but I don't know what this port is or how it connects. Pictures inside.

I'm pretty hardware-useless, so hopefully someone can send me in the right direction. I bought this
enclosure. My hard drive is a Seagate ST94Q11A that came with an HP 2100 series notebook.
- The drive and the weird port.
- Close-up of the port
- The port on the enclosure.
- The two ports are the same size, so one cannot plug into the other.
- Probably the clearest picture.
I'm really sorry for the webcam pictures! I thought they would do; my camera is loaned out until next week.
Is there an adapter that I need? How do I get this darn thing connected? From the reviews on Newegg, it looks like it should just plug in easily, but the port on the hard drive is goofy and my geeky pals could not identify it, either.
