I am trying to retrieve information from an old WD400. The back of the drive looks very different from newer HDD's. I'm not sure if I have this right, but one looks like a 19-pin motherboard connector, the next is a 10-pin connector, and the last is a 4-pin molex.


The circuit board doesn't seem to be burnt. Which products/cordage do I need in order to allow my PC to read the WD400? My current core components are listed below if that helps.


Asus - Sabertooth Z87 ATX LGA1150
Intel - Core i7-4770K
Western Digital - BLACK SERIES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
SeaSonic - 760W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular PSU

From the description you've given, that is an IDE hard disk drive. You can attach it to a 3.5" IDE HDD enclosure/casing/caddy, which essentially makes it an external HDD that you can access via USB. One such casing is this one https://www.amazon.com/3-5-IDE-HDD-E.../dp/B0018NEQFI

Yes, this is an IDE HDD (see attached)
To access this 40GB HDD, you also can use a USB Adapter https://www.amazon.com/Drive-Adapter...6499231&sr=8-2
