Need data from an old hard drive

I have an old HP Pavilion 8275. It's a Windows 95 machine with an ATX40R80 (8 GB) hard drive.

I bought a new HP Pavilion, a6152n Vista running.

Because I could use some of the data on the old disk, I bought a USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE, an ADA-2020, to see if it would work. That documentation is rare is an understatement, but everything seemed to work.

Adapt in the caps, my Vista machine, said the USB mass storage driver correctly loaded, the leds came and the player seems to run properly.

A new drive letter. No display of records or anything like that I know. Everything works fine, I think that, just no data in the view.

Am I missing something obvious?

-I ran the connection through a hub 4 ports and an extension of the short to join the back of the computer because it is in a very cramped place.

After reading some of the other posts, I decided to bite the bullet and connect the player to the back of the computer.

It worked. I now have a new reader J.

    As far as I know that you must add the Group everyone in the folder options. Right-click on the folder-online security-online advanced-online (effective) permissions
    There, you must add the user to the other laptop or for example all users. Then it should work.

  • With the help of Windows Easy Transfer - need to transfer the old HARD drive to new computer - old HDD attached as external drive for the new usb port of the computer - help

    New computer installed Windows 7 and gave me an option to use Windows easy transfer to transfer files, data, programs, etc. from my old computer.  All I have from the old computer's hard drive; a lightning strike fried either food or his mother by car.  I have attached the hard as a disk to the new computer using the usb cable provided with the external hard drive case.  It is recognized as drive E: on the new computer.

    Trying to follow the instructions given by the Windows Easy Transfer software.  Get the software/folder from the old hard drive (drive E), but trying to run the software that I can't seem to do anything on the old disk.  When asked what is the former or the new computer - I respond to old, but no new file is created for the transfer.  When I answer again, a new file is created on the new computer (rather than the old HDD) and then he transferred again to new.  I can't create a file of whatever it is I want to transfer from the old HDD.

    I can't use an easy transfer cable because the old computer does not only the hard drive.  I can't connect to a network for the same reason.  I only have the hard that I can attach to the new computer.  But I can't get the new computer to process the old hard drive separately for transfer purposes.  The only other option I can think of is to attach the old HDD to another computer, and then try to run the software in this way, but I don't want just the stuff on the old hard drive a copy to the other computer.

    Can anyone help?  Suggest how to get the old hard drive files, data, transferred etc. to the new computer.  What are the steps?

    Thank you.

  • I can unzip software xp from my old hard drive and cd keys etc?

    Seems unfair that I would have to pay for the same software over and over again. XP

    I can unzip software xp from my old hard drive and cd keys etc.? I have probably 4-5. I'm sure that in time prove a less automated process for drivers, I recall. Suppose I could provide proof of purchase, cd key of certificate etc, so how can I get a cd of xp? the cost of quality? or better yet download?

    You may be able to put the old disks in another system, activate by phone (unless they are OEM, in which case you will need to have the original material) then create an image of the operating system and move to any material you like. This isn't a guarantee that it will work and the process is not valid if your copy of Windows is retail. Regarding imaging software, XP does not come with one, so you will have to seek support 3 left.

Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

    I had a hard disk going bad. Installed a new hard drive and the need to transfer files from the old hard drive. I have an external enclosure for the old hard drive and can connect by usb port.
