Anybody know how to access my now 2nd HDD, here's the problem; Intel based PC took a dump (typical of emachines), built a replacement thatís now AMD base (XP SP3 would not allow for my original HDD to completely boot-up, goes to the XP option screen with no results keeps restarting, something about XP SP3 had some weird Intel only file that was real hard to access and delete, that does not allow a AMD base to start up, tried some info. w/o any results), reinstalled with another HDD and reinstalled software and my newly built PC does see and allows some access to my original HDD, witch is now a slave, but cannot retrieve my files and I even have the password (but no way input it), so can anybody HELP!
