Default Hard Drive Read Problem

sponsored links

Hi All!

I had a Dell XPS M1710 which failed on me due to graphics card (I know, I know, common problem - shouldn't have bought it etc!).

Anyways, I took out the sata hard drive and put it into a USB external caddy then plugged it into my new laptop.

The harddrive shows up in "My Computer" but when I click to open it I get an error message saying it can't be opened?

I did use a recovery prog and can access the files of the harddrive and have copied a few to my laptop already. But it takes about 2.5 hours to run the recovery prog every time I want to access the harddrive files.

Why can I access the files through the recovery prog and not through "My Computer"?

Any help would be much appreciated!


PS: I'm running Vista.
