I recently got a new computer with 2 SCSi hds. My old computer had information on its ide hds that I need. Is there anyway i can set up the thing so i can transfer the data, or will I have to network them togather?

Does your new computer have PCI? If it does, you could get a PCI IDE card and plop the drives in there. Alternatively, you could get a SCSI to IDE Adapter ( http://www.pc-pitstop.com/scsi_ide_adapters/ )
If you can't spend then you'd have to do a network transfer.

Is it possible that the M/B has IDE slots in it and that the two SCSi are running off of a card?
If so plug the IDEs into the port for the IDEs.

Actually, i took a look at it a minuet ago. Got scsi and ide on the board. When I connected the ide hd, it wouldnt see it. I tried each jumper setting, and each location on the cable. Unless there is a setting in cmos i have to change, i think im gonna have to do the network transfer.
