  1. Folks,

    My IHD has crashed, and I have tried several options
    - booting from CD ROM etc.

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to access the hard drive via another computer - repair / retrive data / format hard drive

    ALSO - where is the IHD on DELL 600.

    I thought I would try to reseat it....

    HELP!!

    Thanks

    - abhi

    No problem, you can attach that laptop HD 2.5 IDE to your desktop HD 3.5 IDE, but you'll need to purchase or get your hands on 2.5 IDE to IDE connector. What I do is either use the Slave Secondary where the CDROM goes and connect the laptop HD 2.5 IDE there. The connector comes with a power connector to drive the HD to the desktop PC pwr. Here you can clone the HD to another 2.5 IDE HD for laptop (you'll need another 2.5 IDE to 3.5 IDE connector for that task. Backup files an etc.. with one 2.5 IDE HD.

    Less than $1.00 at a computer fair more than $5 at a computer retail store or online.

    Thanks very much ...

    I am kinda new to this...

    Actually, I have 2 other laptops, I can use (not desktop).

    Prefer to use a Inspiron 1150 to recover

    More importantly - Where is the internal hard drive on the Latitude D600 located. Can't seem to find the model config on Dell website either.

    Thanks
