hey everyone, this is my first post and I'm happy to be a part of the group! I found the group via google while trying to fix a print spooler error that wasn't allowing me to print or install a new printer. I was finally able to fix the problem after reading a few post here - thanks a bunch. I have another question I'm hoping you all can help me with: I have an old hdd that has a corrupt version of ME. I want to pull some photos from the disk but I am unable to access any of the data. Is there a free program or app available that will help? I checked on download.com and saw a program called "Pandora", but I don't know anything about it. If I connect this drive via IDE cable as a slave to my current computer, can I retrieve the files without loading a clean version of the ME operating system? I am currently using XP on my main computer. Thanks in advance!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Easiest way to do this is to take the hard drive out of the system. Disconnect the ribbon cable & power from the cdrom drive(s) on the computer you want to pull the data onto. Connect the hard drive to there.
That way you dont have to worry about changing any jumpers.

The XP computer should read that drive fine & you should be able to pull your data off it.
In the beginning there was the command line.
