    I'm trying to use a Compaq 2.5 hard drive w/ XP in my NHDE25, and my new HP w/ Vista won't recognize it. Looks like a driver problem, but I can't find any. If you have any ideas, I'm at dchinid@juno.com. Thanks!

I had a similar problem running a Maxtor 45 gig HD under Vista using the Nexxtech enclosure, It finally worked when I set the Maxtor 45 (in the enclosure) to "master" using the jumper.
Try it!!

I see..well..was the old hard drive running xp by chance?..seems that with the new vista, that each application would need to be upgraded with drivers to pull the old data..another option is to use a data recovery service.

I want to have xp on my vista gateway laptop


Hello, Its really hard to downgrade from vista to XP on dell laptops. vista and XP use completely different drivers and dell has stopped writing drivers for XP. But still you can downgrade. You need to setup external SATA harddrive from where your XP CD should boot as it wont boot from your current harddrive that has vista. Even if you set these up and downgrade, Since dell has stopped writing drivers your new XP will not work with many new softwares and applications as you wont have drivers for them. I would advice you to use Vista. Good luck, Please rate the solution. ~regards, Jegan

300W LITE-ON PSU
2.2 GHz AMD Sempron LE-1250 CPU (waaaay faster than it sounds)
nVIDIA Integrated Graphics
Realtek HD Capable Integrated Sound
Dell 0RY206 Motherboard
PBDS DVD-ROM/CD-RW Drive
160 GB WD HDD
2 GB DDR2 RAM
Windows Vista Home Premium

Can't get file to open off old hard drive


Vista runs NTFS...if your old XP-based machine was not, try converting to it (you'll probably need to put back in the old machine to do it)...I don't think that's the problem though as my older XP-based computer was running NTFS & my Vista-based machine keeps dinging & asking to try USB 2.0...It is USB 2.0,I then tried the setup disk and it says I have to remove the current 2.0 driver already in the Vista (I don't think so!)...I'm thinking that a Vista driver (from whatever sourse) will be needed,,,lacking that I'll return mine to Best Buy and try another brand that supports Vista.

The small disk fits into the exact center of your cd drive (not hard drive which is internal). There is a recess for it. If there is not one you have an old CD drive. Given you have Vista and a Dell I am assuming it is a relatively new machine...you could also have a combo cd/dvd drive or a just a dvd drive which accepts both dvd's and cd's (and should also accept the small cd's).
