SCSI U320 hard drive - I need to read the data... how can I do that?

I have a 75GB hard drive 10K RPM, wide U320 SCSI and need to get the data off of it.  Is it me or is this an old format?  I have old servers with SATA.  The drive has a date code of 2003.  Is there an easy way to read this?  SCSI to sata adapter?  I have the scsi cable for this drive.

Is there a SCSI to USB adapter?  Anything I can get at a local store?

Never seen scsi to sata.
SCSI to USB exists but may be easier to get old wide scsi adapter with 68 pin ribbon cable?
It should be readable if it was not used in array before.

You need a SCSI controller.  You don't have to go for a more expensive U320, any LVD (low voltage differential) will do, as long as you get the cabling right.   Then safest thing to do is use LINUX or UNIX to do a raw copy w the dd command.   A drive that old has a limited lifespan, so best to get data off of it quickly.

what would you think the controller would cost? $50?  $100?  More?

thanks

not more than 50$ Maybe someone could give you such controller for 2-3 days?
And remember about cables. Good cable costs more than controller...

Be very careful about connector type. Probably you have 68 pin but you may also have SCA-2 with 80 pins...
There's no issues about SCSI compatibility but connectors are a nightmare.

I found a shop that will do it for 80.  As much as I want to be involved / control freak, this was quicker.

I found this link though if someone else comes upon this question:
