To test a HDD
Hi..My PC with Win XP Pro and FS Fat32 will only boot up to the Asus m/board logo...and remains there.I don't know if the 60GB HDD is functional. I removed the 60GB IDE HDD and put it into an external case. I also have an old PC with Win 98SE and Fat32. Can I connect this external HDD via USB to the old PC and (1) will it be recognised and (2) could I read any info. off it and (3) is there any risk in doing this, especially if it is dead or dying?
I can access another PC running Win XP Pro and FS NTFS. Would your answers be different if this PC was used instead?
Thanks for any assistance whatsoever...Ray
