1.) What do you mean by "pre-illegal Napster?" Napster is now legal, but any/all copyrighted music downloaded using Napster previous to that juncture was/is illegal.

2.) When your old computer passed away, what exactly happened? It's possible the hard drive was also affected.

3.) If you click No/Cancel, does the drive still appear in My Computer (or even Disk Management)? If the former is a yes, can you right-click it and choose to explore?

Let us know.
