Hi everyone! I have an old IDE-drive with some photos I would like to transfer to my Mac. I have tried to do some research and found some regarding master/slave relationship, but I'm not sure if that only applies when connecting the HDD directly to the motherboard. I would therefore like to borrow your expertise my friends My end goal is to connect the HDD to my Mac via USB through some sort of adapter, and through that be able to copy the files. I have two questions regarding this: 1. Which adapter should I use/what should I look for in an adapter? (Or maybe, are IDE-drives typically plug-and-play or would that differ depending on the design of the adapter?) 2. The drive is most has the file format of NTFS. I don't know if Macs natively can read NTFS, but I do know there are ways for them to do so. What I wonder though, is if there's any point in using some version of Linux for this? Maybe IDE-drives are better supported in Linux? Please forgive me if these are simple questions, I grew up some time after the days of IDE-drives and simply don't know a whole lot about them. Thank you for your time!
