    2.5 Hard Drive Enclosure Driver CD FOR XP NOT VISTA


    Hi this is gonna sound very stupid but I ran over my laptop but managed to
    save the hard drive and put it into a Hard drive enclosure which came with a
    cd. I used the cd on xp/2000 and it worked fine (except I couldn't see any of
    my much needed files for some reason) any way I tried to install the cd on to
    my new laptop (vista) and it said

    THIS PROGRAM JUST CAN RUN ON WINDOWS 98/WINDOWS 2000 BELOW SP3

    How can I get it to work? When I plug the usb for the HD the computer
    installs the drivers but there is nothing in my computer so I can't access
    anything on the hd.

    PPPPPPPLLLLLLEEEEEAAAAASSSSEEE HELP ME.
    This hd has over seven years of pics on it please help me. rl0409@xxxxxx

    The enclosure with a working hard drive installed into it should work
    without the need for drivers.

    If you can't see your files, and couldn't when the enclosure/drive was
    attached to an XP/2000 machine, your hard drive may well be dead, i.e files
    gone forever..
