RAID enabled external hard drive

Possibly this is a stupid question, but maybe not.
Once a RAID 0 set has been created, is the RAID set "married" to the particular controller used to create the set?
Here are the specific details of the problem.
I have 2 Lacie BigDisk 500GB Firewire800 external drives (PN#300871). Both contain 2 250GB drives in a RAID 0 array. Both contain about 500GB of data (video). Both of the devices have failed within a week of each other and it seems to be a power or controller problem. I have had similar problems with a non-RAID Lacie USB drive and I just removed the drive and put it in the computer, where it continues to work fine. Is there a similar option in this particular case? If I hook up each pair of drives in a computer with a functioning RAID controller, will I be able to access the drives and copy the data to our NAS?
