Question about Western Digital WD2500JS 250GB SATA2 7200rpm 8MB 250 GB SATA II Hard Drive
The motherboard on my 18 month old HP desktop computer quit working and I have purchased a new HP DT with a 640GB WD HD using VISTA 64 BIT Home Premium OS. I wish to access the data on the WD2500JS (old computer running XP) and ultimately use as a data back-up drive. To that end I have extracted the WD2500JS HD from the old machine and placed in a "Master Cooler" external enclosure and hooked up to the new machine via USB 2.0 connection. The HD appears to spinning and VISTA tries to search for the necessary drivers but cannot and hence the external drive does not register. Can you please advise what steps I need to take? Thank you.
use the cd installer that comes with "Master Cooler"
after successful installation, u can now use the Hard drive.
