Let's use that and see if this no-install, boot and run from CD lets you see the drive contents. I don't want to use any data recovery that could write to that drive in case it wipes the drive clean.
Hi there I have recently done a clean install of Windows XP SP3 on a Dell c521 (Downgraded from a Vista) after downloading all the right drivers for it to get it to scratch i wanted to transfer data from my external hard drive onto the XP. the hard drive is found in device manager (as USB mass storage) and disk management (but there is not actual label attached to it) but does not appear in My Computer. it does not give me the option to change disk drive letter if i back click the option in disk management there are no options highlighted.The hard drive works on other pcs so cant be down to corrupt files etc. help! tried everything possibleHard Drive Lacie By S+arck (320gb)
