You cannot do that. Your drive which is SCSI will not connect to an IDE/SATA controller in the external hard drive enclosure.

Well yea because it won't fit, let me rephrase my question, what would I need to do to connect my SCSI hard drive to the Sata / IDE enclosure? Is there an adapter or some way to rig this up to work?

I have a scsi board but when I hooked it up to my pc my pc wouldn't boot lol. Not sure how to configure it or if it was just bad (broken).

There is no adapter that I know of which would allow you to do this. You would need an external SCSI enclosure which would come with an external SCSI connector. You would then plug that into a SCSI controller port on your PC which would likely be on the back of your SCSI controller card in your PC.

Ok well If I install my SCSI controller board and use my 10 k hard drives on my PC I can take out a Sata drive in my PC and then use that with the enclosure.

So now my next question, do you have any tutorials or links or just advice on how to set up my SCSI controller so it won't crash my PC? lol.

P.S. thank you for the help & fast responses
