Welcome to G2G

The simplest way to transfer your files across, is to invest in a 2.5in USB caddy. See the link below for an example of one :

All you need to do is remove the hard drive from the dead laptop, place it in the caddy, then connect it to the USB port of the new laptop. You can then copy across anything you want from the old drive to the new one

I have the same problem. My old laptop is dead. I want to copy the data from the old hard drive
(Seagate Momentus 4200.2 100GB Ultra ATA 44 pin) to my new laptop. The web site above is out of stock. Any retail store or other web site where I can find something that would work?
