I am a complete novice, can you help me please? I have purchased a 3.5 SATA/IDE back up enclosure to transfer files from old to new desktop. I have removed frame holding old harddrive into tower but cannot...

You want to remove the hard disk from old computer, connect it to the enclosure, and connect it externally to the new computer, right?
Now you have a problem connecting hard disk to the enclosure.
Usually there are no SATA/IDE enclosures. They are either IDE or SATA.
If the data connector in the hard disk (HDD) is rectangular with around 40 pins inside, it is an IDE HDD. Else if it has L shaped horizontal connector, it is a SATA HDD.
I suggest you to take the hard disk to the store and ask for a matching enclosure. If you bought the wrong one, they might replace it with the correct one.
If you feel you want to do it yourself, let us know. However an IDE HDD cannot be connected to a SATA enclosure and vise versa.
I sincerely hope you will get to copy the required files to your new computer. However before copying, it is better to install a reliable virus guard.

How can i copy to an iomega harddrive from another? basically i would like to have the same files as the original! any ideas?

Hi ,
Plug each drive in a USB plot of your computer and use a " copy to " or " drag and drop " way to transfer the files . It's like moving or copying files from one place to another on your HDD , just the same .
Best regards ,

Unique customer Registration for MYOB Plus 11 I used MYOB 7 for years, and it worked all the way up to Windows 7 - now it won't even start. Its time to leave. I have a copy of MYOB Plus 11 that seems to...

Or, just get a version of windows 7 (look for "Windows Anytime Upgrade" on your computer) that can run a virtual XP machine (Pro or Ultimate versions), then download and install the virtual PC hyper-viser kernal and the XP Mode virtual machine.

Next, install your old copy of MYOB 7 into the XP mode virtual machine, copy your data files, and it should work....

EXPLANATION OF "WHY": MYOB 7 was actually meant to run on windows 95/98 machines, and this wasn't a problem in XP, because it could run a program that would basically emulate all of the win95/95 API's, under which MYOB 7 could run. Starting with windows vista, those old API's and emulation programs were basically tossed. Running the program under a virtual XP machine will give your old programs, like MYOB 7, access to those old API's. BTW, once the program is installed, it should auto register with windows 7. After which it will run in the win 7 interface almost as if it were a native program (will take longer to load as it has to load XP OS too).

One note, any custom forms (invoices, etc) may not work after copying them to the new installation of MYOB. Change their file attributes from Read Only (uncheck that box from within the files' properties dialog, via windows file explorer).

Oh, you'll definitely want as much RAM in your computer as you can get in there. XP mode will take a minimum of 512MB, but it'll be slow unless you set it up for at least a gig of ram.

System backup

depending on what drive it is. Let's say it's a western digital, They all have software on there websites to copy a drive to a new drive. in westerd digitals case it would be and in the support downloads section you would find the software.

You would have to hook up both drives and tell it which you drive you want to copy from (old drive) and to (new drive)

Wow! I hope no one was injured. If the info is retrieviable, I recommend intalling a new hard drive with an os install on it. Set the jumpers on the "flame" hard drive to slave, connect as a second hard drive and power on your system. Hopefully no flames and all systems go. You simply copy the file from the second drive to the new drive.

NOTE: Without reinstalling the software from a disk, you will need to point any apps that need the old file to the NEW location of the file. (i.e.- if MS Ofiice Word is on the old drive and you open a Word doc, you may need to tell the location of the MS Office file you want to use.)

Good Luck

Hello Betty,

The way you do it is mouting your old hard drive as 'slave' on your new computer..(if it's not the same).
do you have any experience on computer hardware?

Cannot load fresh windows xp professional

I will agree, that uncertified OS often come back with refusals to install certain files as those files weren't copied correctly.

It's also possible that your OS disc is old and very scratched, which could cause information transfer issues. I suggest either using, or getting a DiscDr. if at all possible. They really do work, and it might save you from having to purchase another OS.
