I recently purchased a refurbished computer after my previous died on me. Nothing was wrong with the old hard drive, though, so I took it out and put it into an enclosure.
I'm trying to access that hard drive with my new computer but when I plug it into the USB port nothing happens. Power is going into the hard drive and the light is on, but the new computer simply isn't recognizing that anything is plugged in.
I tried to find some kind of program on the new computer that can do the transfer, but the Easy Transfer thing can only work if I set it up on the old computer first.
How do I get the new computer to recognize the old computer's hard drive?
Windows 7 Ultimate is installed on both hard drives, but I think the new one is 64-bit while the old one is 32-bit. They are both part of the HP Pavilion series, but slightly different models. And, uh... I can't think of any more relevant information.
