    if the hard drive pcb look ok you can pick up a usb to ide/sata kit on new egg. comes with all the cables and a power brick to plug a int drive into a usb port.
  2. You can get an external USB enclosure for the HDD in the Toshiba. Install the drive into the enclosure and plug it into a usb port and pull any files you need off the drive.
  3. You may also need to take ownership of the drive from the security tab on the drive's(or even a single file or folder) properties in my computer.

    You only need to do this is you get a access denied or permission issue message.
