connecting to old xp hard drive

It seams as i may have a bit of a problem.

I have just got my new work laptop (toshiba xp) with my new job and i have been trying to get access to my old hard drive from my previous laptop.

the problem is that when i plug my old hard drive into a external box and plug the usb lead into my new laptop it is recognised by my new laptop as a external drive but i can not see it in my computer but i can see it in disk management.

any ideas why i cant see it in my computer

Its showing as healthy (active) if i right click on it all i can do is delete the partition

Fixed it just not sure how ?

I booted from my old hard drive in safe mode it did not work but somehow when i rebooted back to normal i had access to the drive
