  1. G'day All,
    I'm having a hard drive problem. My hard drive crashed I've bought a new one have loaded up windows xp pro tried connected my old drive (making a clunking noise) as a slave drive and my computer just hangs at the XP pro openning window and does not advance. If I disconnect the slave win XP opens up correctly. I can't then connect when I'm in windows as it doesn't recognise that i've connected the drive.

    I'm trying to recover some data on the old drive.

    Any suggestions/help would be appreciated? thanks in advance.

    Hello and Welcome there are a number of program out there that can recover data. I can't refer you to any because I haven't used any of them but someone should know if it is not to late. :hotouch:
