I have an Ide internal hard drive I replaced in my computer and I need one
of those devices that you plug the drive into and then plug a USB into your
computer so you can access the data on the old drive. What is that device
called.

External Hard drive enclosure. Google it for many sources.

http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=92&name=External-Enclosures
is one but again many more and possibly cheaper than neweggs.

Ensure that it will accept IDE (or PATA) drive, not SATA drive which is a
different interface with the drive.

USB to IDE adapter. Several variations exist. The safest being to put
the drive into an external enclosure. The quick-and-dirty route being to
use a bare adapter that just plugs into the drive itself, along with a
power supply. Typically around $10 on fleabay.
