Question Not working HD?

HI everyone,

So here it goes,

my mom just got a new computer, and she wants to get the pics off her old computer, but the old one has screwed up bios(i think) and isnt working

so i took out the HD and installed it in my computer, my computer sees the HD as drive "E" but when I try to "explore" the HD, windows askes me "this drive not formatted, would you like to format this drive?" and of cours i dont, or i would lose the pics,'

what do i do so that i can explore this HD and get off all the pics?

Thanks,
