It is very easy,just insert the pen drive into your PC and your PC will automatically recognize it. After it is opened,just copy and paste all the data on your usb or pen drive.

If both your Dell and the hard drive have USB ports you may be able to download directly. Other wise you may purchase an external drive and load the data to that. The external drive almost certainly will connect by USB.

How can get rid from Thinkpoint


A "Thinkpoint" is a computer-virus. On a virus-free computer, Google-search for 'remove thinkpoint'
to get some good advice.

Or, follow best practises, which state that you can never remove 100% of a computer virus.

So, disconnect the old disk-drive, and purchase a new disk-drive.
Install Windows onto the new disk-drive.
Install anti-virus software on the new disk-drive.
Connect the old disk-drive as a "slave" device.
Copy all your data files from "old" to "new".
Use the anti-virus software to scan the "old" disk-drive.
Completely "wipe" the old disk-drive, and then use it as a "backup" drive,
e.g., once a day/week/fortnight, copy everything from your 'My Documents' folder to that "old" drive.

It may be the DC to DC circuit, which is in the motherboard or could be just the DC power jack.
If you gently move the power plug of the laptop left, right, up and down and you see the LED lights changing that, is a sign of a lose DC power jack to fix it, you will either re-solder or replaced it.

Good luck

I have windows vista just had a new hard drive installed the data off the old drive has been put onto an hdd caddy how do I load it back onto the new hard drive of my computer, the caddy is a plug in via a...


When you insert the usb cable from the caddy into a USB port on your notebook, Vista will automatically recognize it and open a dialog box. Choose to view files and folders.

Open another Window using Explorer and resize it so you can see the contents of your C: drive.

Then simply drag your files and folders from the caddy to the C: drive where you want them.

Remember that transferring program files will NOT help you as many of the files needed to run a program are located in other folders such as yours Windows directory. You will need to reinstall any software you wish to use.

This method is strictly for data transfer, as an example all your pictures, documents, spreadsheets, etc.

Computer hardrive


If your old hdd is a SATA drive you can install it as a secondary drive in your new computer. All you would need to do is install the drive, hookup the SATA data cable and power cable, & boot up. You can then move the data you need to your new hdd. If it is an older IDE drive you would need to set the jumpers to slave[sl] or cable select[cs] depending on what your new system requires. Hookup the ide ribbon cable and power cable from your power supply. Good luck & I hope this helps.

I want to get data from an older machine


The way I do it is: purchase a USB hard drive enclosure (about $29.99) . Install your old hard drive in it,obtain your old data. Afterwards you can use the old hard drive as a backup device. This would work well for your laptop. You can save your pictures,video and songs on the external hard drive.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hard drive dont load up properly


your hard drive is dead mate. sorry. they die form time to time.
buy yourself a new hard drive and an external hard drive caddy (a 3.5" one) make sure the caddy is the right connection for your old hard drive. either sata or ide.
then put the new hard drive into your pc to take the place of your old one, and load windows onto it.
next get your old hard drive into the usb haddy drive caddy/enclosure, connect it all up and see if you can use the ghost function on norton anti-virus secruity to bring back your old data.

hope this helps.

Hard Drive swap


You could purchase a 2.5" hard drive enclosure. These are usually powered purely by the USB cable. This will allow you to recover any data from the old hard drive.

Installing External Hard Drive


Are you sure that you have connected it to the USB 2.0 interface? In some systems, there are older versions of USB interfaces (having smaller data transfer rate-inappropriate for external HDD's) are also present.
