I have an Acer Aspire laptop that is beyond repair, however I have some files saved on the hard drive that I need to get off of the computer. I purchased a SATA cable and removed the hard drive. When I plug the hard drive into my desk top (HP with Windows 8), I get a System Reserved Local Disk (F:) and a Local Disk (G:). When the computer detects the hard drive, it states that there was a problem with drive (F;), to scan and repair. I've tried scanning and repairing, but it just sits there. I've tried going into Local Disk (G:) to see if any data was stored there and when I click on the drive, it locks my computer up and causes it not to respond. Since the graphics card in the laptop is gone, I could not plug up the laptop with a VGA cable. How do I get my files off of the hard drive? The laptop was Windows 7. Could that be the problem? I'm mainly just wanting photos and music.
