External Harddrive won't work with Vista
I have a standard 80 gig Western Digital hard drive which I converted to an external hard drive with an ide-to-usb kit. It ran on my old laptop, which had XP installed. That laptop has since stopped working, and I want to move the files over to my Vista machine. Whenever I plug in the harddrive and attempt to find it in "Computer," the window freezes and says "not responding" until I unplug it. It just won't recognize the hard drive or let me explore it at all. Any ideas?
