Hello,
I have a HDD mounted in a caddy that came out of my laptop that ran vista. My desktop runs on windows 7 and when I connect the external drive via USB the drive just beeps at me. If I plug it into a computer running Xp I can see the drive but cannot access them as I don't have admin rights. I need to get some files of it asap
