Just place the drive into a working computer, and the disk will be recognised by windows and you will be able to access it just like any other drive
Let me clarify, I'm sorry for anyone reading and scratching there heads
Well Tom, I have the hard drive with the information I want on it plugged in slave IDE. The computer I'm running it with works fine, but, when I try and access the hard drive with the information I want on it, windows prompts me to first, format the drive which, we all know 'erases' the data off of there so this entire process is completely useless to me.
The hard disk with the information I want on it, has/had an install of windows xp on there. I thought I could boot from it since it was a full install and do it that way, but, the drive isn't formatted from what windows is saying.
