I have some old (10 years maybe?) SAS hard drives that I need to get a few old records from. If they were SATA drives I have an adapter so I can plug them into my laptop via USB. Does such a thing exist for SAS drives? If not, how would one connect them to a laptop?

Thanks for the reply but in the product description it says:

"This product cannot be used to connect a SAS hard disk to the SATA port of a normal motherboard."

In order for it to work you have to connect it to a SAS-capable motherboard. I don't even have a motherboard, I'm trying to connect it to a laptop.
