Question about Dynex DX-EF101 (DXEF101) External Floppy Drive
my pc recently gave out so i want to transfer my files from my old pc's hard drive to my friends pc. the geek squad guy said that the new pc should just read the old HD as if it were an external HD so i purchased a dynex external hd kit and installed my old HD into it and connected it to my friend's pc via a usb cord. the files show up but we keep getting a message of "permission error" when we try to move the files to his pc. Does it matter that my old HD had windows xp and his pc has vista? i also read on this site that it might be a problem with the jumpers on the external HD. i am a novice so laymans terms please. thank you for your help!
It is exactly right... YOU are not 'in control' of the hard drive and your buddy's computer doesnt have the 'permissions' to work with YOUR files...
It MAY be possible to get the okay if he logs into his computer as the administrator.... it is NOT an actual 'hardware' issue... being able to see the files says that... XP and vista are 'close enuf' design-wise that drive compatability isnt it either...
If your friend can log in as 'administrator' he will likely be able to take 'ownership' of the files on your 'external' drive and get what you need!
