Default little question

So I was going through some stuff in my garage and I found 2 IBM DSAS-3540 HDD(jun and july 94.) I was wondering how can I recover any info that might be in there. Do I need any special hw or can I just connect them to a computer?

What are your system specs ? Not much to go on system-wise, but if they are IDE drives (are they ?) then you could just plug them in and see. What other drives do you have on your computer ? You have to give some more information before anyone can help

Looks like you'll need a 50 pin SCSI adaptor. These don't usually cost too much if you don't have one already.
