I figured that this issue I am having would best be suited here. I know nothing about forensics but I am ready to learn. I have an issue and my wife is about to kill me if I can not fix the problem. I had my desktop setup where I had the OS running off of a SSD drive and then I had 3 400gb SATA hard drives in a Raid 5 configuration off of the mother board to support all of the pictures, movies, music and stuff. This worked well since the hard drives were cheap and I had one fail and replacing it was not an issue since it picked the RAID back up with out a problem.
Well my motherboard bit the dust and its an outdated Gygabyte motherboard (I do not know what exact model since I am on deployment 1/2 a world away) I was troubleshooting this right before I left for deployment with no love.
We have lots of pictures and stuff on those drives, I was unable to successfully mount them to any operating system without them requesting to be formatted first. I bought another motherboard with a raid controller but it wants to rebuild the raid from scratch and format the drives.
Is there any way for me to get the pictures off of those 3 hard drives? (pictures of my Son from birth to his 2 year birthday and many others)
Thanks for any advice and direction you can send me. I am wanting to do this myself and make it a learning experience to get into the forensic hard drive stuff, but I really don't know where to start.

So much more to learn...
