The motherboard in the 9150 failed, I was told that I'd be better off getting a new PC as the motherboards in Dells are expensive to replace and other cheaper motherbaords wouldn't fit the case.
Until I can get a new PC, I've bought an external SATA enclosure to see if I can take the drives out and connect them to my other older PC a Dell 8200, in an effort to gain access to their files.
The older PC only has one internal 40gb IDE drive, so I've connected the SATA external hard drive by USB.
Both the PCs have Windows XP
The first of the two SATA drives I tried, showed up in My Computer, but when you clicked on it,it said the drive was not formatted would I like to format it now. I couldn't get access to its data at all.
I tried the second, it didn't show up in My Computer but did show up in Disk Management.
It shows up as online but says it is unallocated and doesn't have a right click option to assign a drive letter.
Any ideas on how to get access to the files?
I can put up screen shots etc, any help would be great thanks
