Getting Data Off Old Hard Drive


I recently upgraded to a Mac Mini from a Powermac G5.

The Powermac itself doesn't work, but I need to access the data from the two internal hard drives.

The hard drives are SATA II interfaces.

Thanks for any help.

Seems to me.....

you have to get the internal HDDs. Then, using a SATA to USB adapter backup the data from these disks
