I am new to this forum, but from what I see it is very informative and helpful. I am not sure I should use this thread or start a new one but here is my story and question.
I built a computer a few years ago and have since been out of the loop with regards to the tech world.
I have a old Abit KT7E motherboard with what I believe has a bad keyboard input. I am getting a few boot up problems. One that a windows file is missing and the inability to use the keyboard to go to the bios or start in safe mode. There is a low constant beep from the MOBO.
I am leaning on getting a new computer anyway but really need my data off my two 40gb Maxtor HD's.
I have just seen these new HD enclosures and was wondering if I can get one to transfer files from these two HD to a new computer.
Is this possible !! If not, what then would be my best option for saving these files.
[The computer I am using now ( HP 6746C Pavillion.. is a piece of junk) ]
Thanks in advance for any advise

Does file system matter? My old hard drives are FAT 32 and I suppose a new computer would be NTFS.
