I have an old internal HD from my 6116 Performa. How would I go about connecting it as an external to my Macbook? I don't plan on using it as storage; I just want to get the data off.


The HD is a 50-pin SCSI Quantum Trailblazer 3.5 series.


Would a SCSI to USB cable work? Or would I have to get an enclosure for it?

Performa 6116CD, Mac OS 8.6 or Earlier
