I have a lot of stuff on the hard drive which I would like to retrieve. Including family pictures and videos, songs, saved emails, etc. I would also like to save some of my old game save files if possible, but this isn't that big of a deal. The family pictures are the most important thing.
I had read somwhere that you can slave the old HD to the new HD and get the files that way. The old HD is a SATA and I do not know how to slave it. Normally I would use flash drives, etc. to transfer the files but this isn't possible as I cannot boot up the comp.
Can someone please help me save the files to my new comp.
Old HD info. - WD3200AAJS - E machines - Vista
New HD info. - Gateway - XP SP3 -
looking at device manager without taking the case apart I find this - WDC WD2500BB-22RDA0
