I have recently had to move a hard disk from an XP system to a Win 7 system due to a hardware failure in the old machine, however Win 7 does not recignise the old data in the old Dynamic partition?

Have tried various types of Partition software to try and rescue the data but it won't show on the new platform any suggestions???
