Hello. First post and i've already got a problem. so sorry. I have an old desktop where my motherboard surrendered. I have a lot of important docs on my work on the hard drive and i wish to extract it out. so i got a ide usb cable thing and connect my old desktop hard drive to my laptop. The thing is the "usb mass storage device" installed smoothly, but I can't see my old hard drive displayed. After some searching, at the device properties, it said "Disk Drive is at Location 0". I checked windows help and googled. but cant really find my answers. Hope somebody can help me with it. I really need to retrive my docs. If its any help, my laptop is running WinXP, while my old hard drive is running Win 98 and its FAT32. Thanks very much in advance for any replies.:wave: S.
