My old Dell Inspiron developed a MBD problem. I have another HP laptop which is working fine. Can I in anyway / use any cable to connect the Hard disk of the old machime to the working one, probably thru an USB port!!!. I need to access the data stored in the old HD.

Thanks in advance for the help

You can purchase an external enclosure for the hdd, this will connect via a USB port.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
