How do I safely scan and get files off potentially infected USB drives?

I think a flash drive and large external drive may have been infected when my internals were hit with Trojans and viruses. I reinstalled Windows 10 and things appear ok so far, but I’m not sure if it’s ok to reconnect my flash and external drive and scan them with defender and Malwarebytes and transfer the files to my internal drives after. Is that safe? I’m on a premium trial with malwarebytes and am not sure if they conflict on full scans.
