Neither am I. I just happen to know that SCSI drives are not like regular drives

well does the pc have a network card or USB interface.
In case of network card: hook it up to your router, boot it while using your current crt monitor/keyboard. leave it on, switch the crt cable to your present pc and do a network neigborhood search.

if it has an usb entry: do the same assign temp. your current monitor, boot up, put the desired images on the usb stick, reconnect your monitor to your current computer, put in the usb stick and hey presto: you can retrieve your dearest images.

Nope.

We are talking early 90s here, Rense. USB (1.0) was a big thing at that time.
