Use spare parts (DVD, HD) of old mac as external devices?

Hi there,

I have a 2010 Macbook Pro 13" that doesn't work anymore, both the battery and the trackpad are unusable. Instead of spending around 200€ for replacing them, is there any way to take the DVD player and the Hard disk out of the body and use them as external devices for my other, newer macbook?

If no, what a pity. If yes, which adaptors would I need?

Cheers!
