Simply plug the the drive into another PC (the PC needs the older standard IDE interface) as a secondary drive and copy the information off of it? That is, if the drive is still working.
Ok Thanks. Forgive me for my ingorance in this field, it's definetly not my area of expertise...but it's a very old computer (built 2001) and I currently have a brand new Dell laptap....could I buy and use an adapter (USB) to try and extract the data? Would it be that easy?
