What cable/caddy etc?

7 posts in this topic

I've got 3.5" HDD from my old Dell desktop that I need to recover sone data off.

Can anyone tell me what cable/caddy I need to connect this to use it as an external HDD?

Cheers.

It's a Fujitsu thingy (see pic).  The 68 pin fitting seems to be a ballache to get a straightforward caddy to work.

Yeah, will be 68 pin Ultra-Wide SCSI...not sure I've seen any of those, will have a hunt.

You might find a 50 pin to USB adapter and then you'd need an adapter for 68 pin to 50 pin. Or, buy a scsi card to connect it internally to your PC..

I'd buy an SSD in a caddy if I was you.

 

I happen to have one.  £50 to you.  That's very, very cheap and you don't need it unlocking either. :grin:
