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.

You need a hard drive to go into a Dell computer right ?
You need to check that the disk interface is appropriate for your computer. They are probably SATA. This is difficult to get wrong because nearly all new drives are this type.
Second you need to check the size of the hard drive. Will it fit in your PC ? If it is a desktop, the you will need a "3.5 inch" (wide) HD, if it is a laptop, you will almost certainly need a "2.5 inch" (wide), probably 9.5mm high. The other dimensions don't matter as they are standard. 500GB will be OK. Everything else will be ok, There is nothing else to consider regarding whether it will work or not. Perhaps you would also like to consider performance, but you will need to do own research on that, unless you just want a general purpose disk for your main disk on a home computer. Most manufacturers in the overview tell what their disks ranges are designed for (eg video surveillance, general purpose, storage arrays, servers etc). Seagate barracuda/momentus or WD Caviar/Scorpio are the standard types.
If you want to keep your system and data (software) intact, just make a clone of your HD onto your new one, this is like having the same computer with a bigger disk. Keep the old disk as a back-up (you should already have one or two back-ups)

External Harddrive does not work

Hitachi hard drive are junk they are poorly made, but here is an option the could by a bigger hard drive and install it in the External case they are all the same, first take out the old HD from the case and take it with you to the store and purchse the same connection type wether its IDE or Sata and install it in the case, the cases are universal and all most all 5-1/4 inch HD will fit in the case is does not have to be A Hitachi Brand any brand will fit, I recommend a Seagate HD.

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.

Trying to boot from a hd from my old comp


MS Windows XP when installed to an HD will "marry" itself to the hardware of the original computer specifically the motherboard. Transplanting the HD to another PC with a different motherboard will result in a cycling blue screen of death or protective message requiring that you reboot. Running in Safe Mode will not also be allowed.

You need to re-install your OS (boot from CD) but choose the 2nd repair option rather than a new/clean install or the first repair option if you want to preserve your other applications as well as your settings/configuration. Doing this will allow the OS to install the new device drivers and delete the old ones.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

God luck and kind regards.
