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.

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.

the first few that have 40 pins are IDE hard disks. the last one is SATA. you can find usb adapters to read them, you do not have to have an enclosure. try this one:
