Retrieving pictures off old computer

I need to retrieve pictures off of Window ME but the CD rom doesn't work properly. It will play music but won't record data. Is there another way?

Re: Retrieving pictures off old computer

You can:

a) Take the hard drive out and put it in a USB hard drive enclosure.

b) use a flash drive if it has USB.

or

c) transfer the files over your home network: Home Networking in Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Slide 10)

Re: Retrieving pictures off old computer

Thanks, I'll try that. If I understand it right I just hook it up to a different computer and send pics to flash drive...

Re: Retrieving pictures off old computer

I'm not sure what you mean. Which method are you trying?

Re: Retrieving pictures off old computer

Ahh I see sorry. I mean something like one of these: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...+hdd+enclosure

I'm assuming the hard drive will have an IDE connector, which looks like this:


Another option would be to simply get a USB-IDE convertor cable like one of these: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...%2Ck%3Ausb+ide

Is your's a laptop? This enclosure is for 2.5 Inch laptop HDDs; a desktop HDD won't fit in it.

Code:
 Suitable for 9.5mm and below thickness 2.5'' SATA HDD SSD

Re: Retrieving pictures off old computer

I probably have to send it back. I also have a laptop. If I kept it could it be of some use for me at a later date? It didn't cost very much...

I'd say send it back if it's not too much trouble.

Can you post some details on your HDD? Post the make and model number OR a few pictures of it perhaps.

You'll have to determine if it got an IDE or SATA connector and if it's a 2.5 inch or 3.5 inch drive.







Then buy the correct USB enclosure or adapter cable (examples below).
