Do you want to just copy it, or do you want to be able to boot it there ?

Depends on what you call special. Any imager can do the first. Nothing can do the second.
daveios...External Hard Drive (USB) recognizes hardware but not drives
I pulled a IBM Travelstar disk from a T21 (I know it works fine, the
problem on the laptop was with the motherboard). I connected it to a
Argosy HD260 external hard disk case (USB connection). On connecting to
an XP box, the system recognizes an IBM-DJSA-220 USB Device, but no
drive letter appear (the disk was used on Win2K, so I assume it is
NTFS, and has two partitions).
How can I see the two volumes on the disk to access the data?

Hi all -
I have a 2001 titanium laptop with a 20 Gig hard drive. The thing is
getting too full and I'm toying with the idea of getting a bigger one and
replacing it. Questions: 1) how hard is it to do myself? Is it easy to
ruin/break something or is it pretty simple to do it right? 2) are there
instructions somewhere on-line? 3) are there different brands of drives I
can buy? If so, any suggestions for good ones or ones to avoid? and 4) I
don't want to re-install the OS, software, preferences, GUI behavior, etc.

I have 2 internal disks that I have taken out from a PC that has failed me
after 6 years of use. I now am using an HP notebook, and I need data from
these 2 disks that I wanted to copy to my laptop ... or possibly use these
2 disks as some sort of temporary storage.
In my previous work, we had some kind of caddy / container for hard disks,
you place the hard disk inside, and it has some minimal wirings to allow
you to plug-in power to the hard disk, and some cable to attach for the
data ( like the flat ribbon inside the PC ). However, I do not know what
this is called and therefore don't...Underside hard drive coolers bad for hard drives
Now....I just remembered something. A while ago, I had a problem with
my WD hard drive. I sent in for RMA. No problem with that.
Now, I have to also send in my Seagate HD as well due to many allocated
What seems to be the common link between these two drives is that I used
a cheap hard drive cooler, the one you fit on the underside of a hard
Could it be possible that the cooler is causing vibration issues and
this is causing the hard drive to exhibit problems over time?

The hard drive in my Mac G3 desktop began making unhealthy sounds, as though
a bearing is going. Is there a way for me to "clone" or image this hard
drive to a new hard drive? Or will I have to install the new hard drive,
format, and reinstall the operating system and programs from scratch?
For those of you who might think the wiser course would be to scrap the G3
altogether and move up to something newer, I feel a new hard drive would be
a worthwhile fix because the rest of the computer is fine. It is mostly used
for word processing, web surfing, and email, so in that respect it i...Mapped Network Drives, USB Hard drives and "Not enough server storage is available to process this command"

I've got two WinXP Pro PC on a 100base10 LAN and no server. Call them PC1

I have several USB hard drives, but I cannot
unplug them because theyt are in use by other programs.
Is there a program that tells us which programs are using (have
locked) a certain USB hard drive?
PS. Windows XP, 3.4GB CPU, 2GB RAM.

I just hooked up a new Simpletech usb 2.0 drive. I'm having an odd
problem. If I try to copy or move, for example, a 2 gigabyte mpeg file
from my internal IDE hard drive to the external drive, it takes
forever. The progress box showing the copy or move estimates it will
take over an hour. However, if I try to copy or move the equivalent
size (2 gigabytes) of non-mpeg files--pdf, word, jpeg, etc.--the
transfer takes place in less than a minute. I have another computer
with usb 2.0 drive that does not have this issue.
Anybody have any idea what might be going on? Is there a problem...Syncing folders

My WD mybook external hardrive died, and now i need a new one for my
laptop (which has th elaptop firewire conneciton, which isn't the same
as the pc firewire connection that most external harddrives come with,
thus need to use usb)
So I'm thinking of getting the following toshiba 320 gb external ( see
link below). However I have also been considering getting a regular
internal harddrive and enclosure. would this be better in terms of
reliability and speed? How difficult is this to set up? If this is
better any recommendations for a 300-500 gb drive and enclosure?
