FIRST is a replacement CRT monitor (an expensive way to go unless you know someone who has one you could borrow)
SECOND you could network the computers using the old DOS INTERSERVER/INTERLINK and a null modem.
THIRD, and probably the best, easiest, and cheapest option would be to get yourself a IDE to SATA adapter kit such as this one I will link you to which allows you to remove the old drive and access it from your present computer:
IDE/SATA to USB kit on eBay
They are available from many other sources such as Newegg and tigerdirect:
I have a Micron Millenium Mme (windows), probably 12 years old, that I need to get data from. The monitor is long gone. I can plug in my current flat screen Dell monitor, but nothing shows up on the screen.
Awhile back, with this same setup, it DID work ( I should have grabbed the data then). I've restarted it numerous time, so I'm not sure what else to try. Any ideas? Thanks?
Or can I plug my windows laptop into it, and "see" it? It has the 9-pin plugs in the back. Thanks.
