I am trying to get the data off of a windows XP desktop hard drive that the motherboard died on. I have a USB adapter that allows me to plug any IDE or SATA hard drive into in then plug it into my PC and access the drive. It has a separate power connector and in the past has worked great.
With this hard drive, I cannot see it when I look at My computer. When I use disk management I can see the drive, but when I right click on the drive all the options to "assign a drive letter", "convert to dynamic disk", "delete partition" etc, are grayed out.
It is a 75 GB IDE drive that shows as "Active and healthy" in computer management. I really need to get some data off of it so any ideas would be really appreciated. Is there any programs I could get? Any techniques I am not aware of etc?
