Hi, I'm a very, very newbie to this forum.
I have a Gateway desktop running Windows ME that has started to die and I want to remove the hard drive, put it in an enclosure, and use it as an external drive for my Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop which is running Windows XP Pro.
The Gateway has lost the ability to spin up CDs so I can't install PC Mover to retrieve the data from the hard drive and this is why I want to do this.
My question is this: do I need to add anything to my Dell in order to do this? I've got a FreeAgent external drive that I use now that connects directly thru a USB and have no problems.
And, I don't want to create any problems on my laptop, but I really need to get the data from the hard drive on the PC.
Can anyway point me in the right direction?
