My mum's computer just melted down.. It won't read any of the USB devices and I'm getting the "Start Windows with Last good configuration or Safe Mode" business..
I hooked up a PS2 keyboard and was able to select the safe mode option, but the computer keeps resetting itself and there's nothing I can do..
This hard drive has a lot of important information on it, so I disconnected it from mum's computer and chucked it in the Slave IDE thing on mine and connected it all up..
XP sensed a Maxtor HD and automatically added it as an F:/ drive, but I can't bloody access it from mine..
It's saying "Drive is not formatted do you want to format now?"..
I said no and tried to use Command Prompt.. I'm got the message "Data error: Cyclical redundancy check"..
I'm wondering if there's anything else I can do to save this data? Or if there was anything else I should've done when connecting the HD up.. Bios setting or anything I missed doing?
This data is very important.. I'm not gonna lose it without a fight..
Any help would be greatly appreciated..
