Older hard drives
Posted on 2006-06-23
I have a rather large collection of older hard drives from systems past. I would like to see if I can get them hooked up to a test system to see what data (or more importantly games) may be there.
There is a wide range of drives from 500MB to 2.1GB to 10 or 12GB. Some I'm not even sure if I would know the size before hooking them up.
What hardware / software would I need to get these running in a barebones state? I know some may be as old as a x386 or x486 system and I'm willing to purchase the older motherboards or peripherals. I'm just not real clear on what I would need from a BIOS being recognized point of view or whether or not I could get video to come up.
Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
