I am having a few issues getting the data from an old hard drive which has been passed to me to look into. The hard drive contains documents and files which would be useful if they could be accessed, and were part of a broken desktop (the failure of the desktop is unrelated to the hard drive, so it is unlikely to have been wiped).
The internal hard drive details are: Samsung SP1203N, 120GB, 3.5" with a 40 pin IDC connection. The trouble I'm having is that my first intention was to plug the hard drive into my desktop using a spare SATA cable, but this was before I saw that the connector would not be compatible, and my motherboard does not have either the data or power ports required.
My question is: what are my options? Is there a way to plug the hard drive into a converter of some kind? I'm having a few issues getting hold of one so far.
Thanks for any help!
