Every motherboard has PATA slots. They have to, for optical drives, you should be able to connect it and then transfer any data you need.

You could use the file and settings transfer wizard. Or just connect the drive to the new board as mentioned above. Or another option would be to get a PATA to SATA converter and connect it that way.
