Lali ho! My netbook has finally died, beyond all repair. Screen won't switch on, it makes a terrible noise, it's basically F'd in the A. I was cautious enough to back up the truly irreplacable files, like my novels and such, but there's a lot I need to extract. I found this.... http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/833...&gclid=CMeFu9PMnrkCFcaWtAodbnoAzQ#srcid=11270 Now, I'm a total techno-newb. I have no idea what sort of connection goes into what. But can this in theory connect the hard drive from my bog-standard netbook, an old E-Machines running the Atom N270, 1GB RAM, etc, to my friend's machine to extract the data? I can yank the thing out of the back of my netbook, piece of piss. Damn near falling out of its own accord, back panel is damaged but the hard drive itself is fine. I can grab this right now if it's what I need. Advice would be much appreciated as I said, I know nothing.
