Customer Question

Hi,
I have a MacBook Pro running OS 10.8.5.
I have some old data on Syquest 88 MB removable cartridges that I would like to retrieve, I don't have a Syquest drive anymore.
Can you tell me what my options might be to get this data onto a USB drive?
If I buy an old Syquest external drive is there a way to have it interface with my Mac?
Any advice would be appreciated.

I suggest you use a service for that is will be cheaper in the long run:

Those drives all have SCSI interfaces and it will be difficult to connect it to your current Mac.
