If you just want to get data off of the drives, or use them for backup, or whatever, I'd probably recommend getting a usb dock for them.
The kind of dock you get would depend on if they have an IDE or SATA interface, but they make it easy to just plug a drive in, read or write to it, and remove it for safekeeping..
