Transferring information from hard drive
« on: December 08, 2007, 09:45:14 AM »
I have a old computer with a failed power supply and I want to transfer the information on the old hard drive to the new computer.  How do I do it with no power on the old computer?

Remove the HDD from the old computer.
Then you need to set the jumper on the hard drive to slave...


Above is an example however your drive may be slightly different.
Then simply hook it up in your working machine on the middle connector of the IDE cable...connect the 4 pin power cord and re-boot.
It will now show up in Windows Explorer and you can copy/burn your files to your heart's content...
