A very old HDD, remove the old?

Found in the bins of old hard 1990. This steampunk Western Digital 43 MB WD95044-A.


Inputs similar to the IDE and Molex. May be they are. I tried an adapter USB-IDE does not see.

What ways are there to see that there are preserved and make a dump. Just look connecting to the computer? I think there standards have changed a lot in 21 years. Right?

And why all the same "Just look connecting to the computer"?

IDE/AT, voltage is also standard. Try.
Here there are more jumpers of old.
I don't have to manually set the cylinders in the BIOS you'll have to find another mother. And on this hangs while trying to initialize - adolphus.Collins90 commented on October 9th 19 at 17:10

I had pohojii in 80286. Was walking with his charge. I now can't remember whether it was compatible with the IDE. Like I stuck it in another computer, but now, after so many years, did not argue... But just remember that in the BIOS manually yourself pointed out a number of sectors, heads and cylinders. On this sticker has to be with all these data. Pick-up directly to the PC and in BIOS to expose all these parameters. Poidee should start.

May need a controller of MCA (I think) — a separate Board connected to the ISA connector on the Board.
The old Umcah used.

But maybe the problem lies elsewhere. I had a hard drive that required a power (power) is much more than a conventional IDE while connected to the laptop via an adapter "dropped" the battery.

Try to connect your hard directly to your motherboard, the "big" PC.
And in the BIOS may still need to set the parameters of the screw (where it says AUTO) to set the "cylinders, heads, sectors" manually. This information may be on the body of the screw.
Simply if the disk is very old, he did not "know" about AUTO...
My motherboard has no manual exposure settings, here's the problem. - adolphus.Collins90 commented on October 9th 19 at 17:14

I had similar calculated automatically normal, it would seem that IDE, but jumpers was a very interesting thing; there were many, they were undocumented (on the screw) and depending on the position of the screw has been formatted slightly differently to different mothers.
Ie put in one position, from formatted on the computer And read, the computer would not read. Put in a different position — the situation is reversed.
I don't need to format it) Why do I need hard volume 30 megabytes? :) - adolphus.Collins90 commented on October 9th 19 at 17:16

Since You have the disks old to work with it, You may need to set the HDD Type in BIOS e (on the model of the disk, you can Google its manual with a list of types). Such a function, frankly, in modern computers, I haven't seen (or looked bad).
