Let's hope it isn't too late yet. Sometimes it is. That's the moment people regret not having a backup.
1. Buy an external hard disk enclosure (the right one for your disk) or SATA/IDE-USB2-cable.
2. Get the disk out of the case and into that enclosure or onto that cable.
3. Find a Windows XP, Vista or 7 PC to get your files off.
Couldn't be easier.
The alternative: see if any of the generic drivers from http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/usbmsd98.php work.
Can you tell me how i can transfer my files or even save them as my old computer is dying out. I have tried the usb port and i could not find a driver. I am not that computer savvy as to repairs. I have tried transferring thru emails but that would take forever. i purchased the Kingston data traveller 101 4gb.
Can anyone help me.thanks
