Can't Get Data From old HD in new comp
All the information I want is on the desktop of my old computer hard drive (HD) , which used Windows XP.
On the new computer, I can't find the information anywhere, I've done searches and so forth, but no files that I want can't be found, although everything else is there. All of this existed on my Desktop.
Also, I can't start the computer with the old HD attached when booting up, I get the blue screen of death and reboot. However, I can start windows without it, then attach it, and search the hardware and get into the HD that way. I got everything I want but whats on the desktop, which is just as important. It says I can't access the admin folder, which is where I think it is. BUT, it says the admin folder is empty, 0 bytes. Was it deleted or is it just a security feature?
The old HD is a Western Digital 80 GB. It wont start with any jumper setings, even as secondary slave. The one I use to boot the computer is a brand new SATA Hitachi HD 80 GB.
I really appreciate feedback. The new mother board is ASUS P4P800 SE, and other new parts are Radeon 9800 SE Power Color, Corsair XMS Extreme Series RAM, DDR400 512 MB.
Update: If I go to ALL USERS, and check the desktop ((Keep in mind I'm the only user on the computer)) I find all the shortcuts for programs I had, but not the actual files I had saved, like my music.
