I have an old Power Mac Performa 6200CD and I pulled the Quantum 3.5 series Hard Drive and I was wondering what I would need to read that drive using my MacBook Pro?

Any advice would be helpful. Thanx

Probably a computer of similar vintage that has a SCSI HD interface. Or an external housing you can put it into...and plug into a slightly newer computer...that again has a SCSI port to plug into.

Do you really think it is worth the expense?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
