Need help with Hdd prob
I have a 2.5" HDD. It was taken out of a laptop that had the southbridge cracked. The HDD had XP pro installed with norton antivirus FAT32 partion was used. I removed it and placed in a enclosure but i can't access the drive. It shows in the device manager. How can i access the drive to backup(there was no backups made by the owner of the laptop) before i re-partion the drive?? I've tried to access the drive with XP, Red Hat, Ubuntu, Fedora and Vista. I even tried to boot from the os that was installed on the drive with no success. Any suggestions?
