Tags: Hard Drives Computer Storage Product Last response: July 9, 2012 4:56 PM in Storage Share kathayes July 8, 2012 9:50:51 PM I have some old drives (see attached images) and I would like to access the files on them, though I have no idea what types of connections these are. http://imgur.com/sXM6v http://imgur.com/fU0ly http://imgur.com/ZXqWv http://imgur.com/ED63A 1. Can someone please tell me what types of connections are used for each of these drives? 2. Can anyone recommend a device that will allow me to plug them into my computer (docking station or enclosures)? Thanks.
