Unfortunately you can not perform a straight drag and drop from a boot drive. The best option for the preservation of all your data, as well as being much faster, would be to utilize backup software such as Acronis TrueImage Home:

Using the link above you can download a 15 day full feature trial which will allow you to create a backup image (with many options available) of your current C: drive to the media of your choice.

Windows 7 won't load drivers


Go to the Simpletech website and download the Win 7 drivers from there. Although there may not be any. If you can't find any try the Vista drivers, these sometimes work.

Can i transfer information to a mac


If the external hard drive has been formatted on a PC in NTFS file format then the MAC cannot read data off this hard drive.
The FIX..
Connect the USB external hard drive to a Windows computer and copy your data off this hard drive to the computer.
Then format the external hard drive in FAT32 file format. (the MAC can read and write to data to and from a Windows PC)
Now copy the your data from the computer back onto the external hard drive.
Now you can connect the external hard drive to the MAC and download your data to the MAC.

My windows XP OS won't recognize my SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 300GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive


I found that often, external hard drives just don't have any active partitions and thus don't show up in Windows. Go into the control panel, administrative tools, computer management and then the disk manager and see if it has a partition. If it's just unallocated space, right click and make one.

I was really hoping someone would post an answer for you . I have the same model and it has recently stopped working on my Vista computer. I suspect a recent MS update or something. How do drivers suddenly not be found any more?

Saving my music


Windows media player is probably right because you have moved the music to another location. You might need to rebuild the library.

Use Windows Explorer to check that the music is on the new drive.

Can I also recommend downloading Winamp to play your music, It's free, sounds better and doesn't spy on you!
