Question about Hitachi (14R9464-20PK) 250 GB Hard Drive
Sure first I need a few questions that have to be answered! This is an easy one! I need to know if we are working with Laptop or desktop? That makes a world of difference, as long as the drive works you can get the data, it is when the drive does not respond you cannot get the info, this procedure is costly.
But if you have a desktop or even a laptop it can be done you may just have to purchase a few things if it is a laptop because a laptop only has room for one HD, a desktop has room for to which will allow you to slave out the drive. When you slave out the hard drive it allows the CPU to be bypassed, it will read the drive as storage only. A few things need to be done in order to have this occur! You must pull the jumper off of the old drive the one you are trying to transfer information. This will keep conflict from the new one reading or trying to be the master.
Try placing the new HD into your PC removing the plasic cap off of the back of the HD. Place the HD into the desktop the same way the new one is. You should have a power connection and a peripheral cable that connects the HD. Once your remove that black plastic cap off of the old drive and place it into your machine with everything powered off and uplugged of course. When booted up it will recognize the drive as a slave drive. You can then extract any photos or files from that drive, by dragging them into any folder you wish! If you need a walkthrough just drop me a line. It is pretty simple. Most places do not like doing the work because it is time consuming. It is very simple, he could have burned your files to a CD or DVD. Would have been less the headache!
