hi, not too long ago my pc died and I am getting it looked at soon but I need some of the files that were on the hard drive, I want to view them on my other computer that is running win ME and the hard drive that has my files has xp installed, I first attatched the hd to the 'slave' port on the ME's hard drive cable and when botted up it gathered new hardware info, but when I went to my computer there were no other drives there. so I then tried to boot up the hard drive on the master port hoping it would run my xp, but no luck because i got a message saying the computer could not recognize os. So if anyone could help that would be great, cheers.

Put the HDD back in slave and then boot up. go into device manager and see if it "sees" the HDD. if it does is there any errors beside it?

It probably won't show up. while the NTFS file system can see all other file systems the ME is a Fat32 and cannot see the NTSF so until the drive was reformated into a Fat file system it can't be seen on ME.
