Data recovery from a SCSI U320 drive

I am trying to recover data from an IBM xseries 206 hard drive, it is a scsi U320 drive. I wanted to get an adapter to convert to USB so I can recover the data, but I am not familiar with this type of connection.  Are their adapters available for this?
1 Solution
can you just get an internal scsi host controller card off eBay cheap and plug it into that?
there are 80-68 pin adapters if thats what you need.

Worst case is to install it internally and copy the data to an ISE/SATA which has tons of external/usb options.
Yes, you can get an adapter to 68 pin scsi for about $20.00 on ebay and then plug it into an adaptec 68 pin scsi card U320 is faster)

I have seen 80 pin external raid boxes that will plug in USB however, they may not be the best idea for data recovery.

Also, If the drive won't identify once you get it connected to a 68 pin card. make sure the cable you use is terminated properly.

Hope this helps,
