My old computer was a Dell and since conversion to Mac has found a new home. However I have retained the two hard drives from the Dell, one 80Gb SeagateU Series 9 and the other a 160Gb Maxtor DiamondMax 20, as there are many years data on them including thousands of photos. Is there any way I can now run these drives and access the data via my iMac desktop?

Yes you can, buy purchasing External drive enclosures to harbour your old drives then connect via USB or Thunderbolt depending on what Ext Drive Enclosure you purchase. Go to somewhere like OWC ~ Macsales.com or NewEgg to buy them, slip them into the enclosure, connect to your iMac and they will come up as a Drive in Finder or your Desktop.

No worries mate, but doesnt matter as they ship to the UK, as they do for me in Australia and either one has a GOOD standing here and any member would recommend them.
