in the internet will play no part in getting file of the x-hd after you put the file on it .believe it or not computers will do all sorts of things with out the internet ever being used on them .

now if i read you post correctly ,you computer now works ,and you are going to connect the x-hd to it and transfer files from you computer to the x-hd for future use correct

if you computer is not working then you have to remove the hard drive from the computer and hook it to another computer ,direct or with a usb external device ,if the drive made noise and died its possible that you may never get the data off with out paying big bucks to do so .
