I have an older computer, which hasn't been fired up in some time. The PC has been largely gutted, and I'd like to find a way to transfer the data from the old hard drive to either a USB stick or my new system.
The drive is a SCSI-2 Ultra LVD made by Western Digital, and used an Adaptec SCSI controller card. Rather than finding another controller card, is there some way to transport the data to another drive? Does such a cable exist where I could go from SCSI-2 to SATA? Just simply taking the SCSI drive, the adapter cable, and putting it in my system as another SATA device? I've done a little digging on Newegg, but I don't see such an adapter off hand. Can someone tell me if what I am trying to accomplish is possible, and if so, how?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions, they are truly appreciated!

would something like this work? Im not really finding much in the way of adaptors im afraid, it may just be easier to find a controller card.

You could try a cable like this one.
But if you do hurry they are getting harder to find.
