@Moab Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it. Unfortunately it didn't help in this case.

Chalk up another successful read on the XP tower. While it was there I did a chkdsk /f which "found no problems". Reattaching to the laptop I still have the problem. I was following the answer in superuser.com/questions/243963/…

@Moab Unfortunately the machine is SP3 but the install disk that came with it is SP2.

@Moab I just took a FAT32 powered external drive that was failing on the laptop in question and plugged it into my old XP tower and it worked fine first time. I'm sorry I don't have more data - I haven't done this before because I'm usually attaching drives to the laptop to copy large amounts of data between disks local to the laptop.
