I had a win98se pc for quite a while but then it broke and I got win xp but I have an old HD on old pc with lots of music on it and over the xmas I will have a bit of spare time so was wondering is their a gadget that will allow me to access the 2 hd drives on old pc and then transfer my files that I want?

it's called your current computer. Install the hard drive as a slave, and you'll be able to access the files from Windows XP.

Another method is to buy and external caddy and connect to your new PC via USB. click here

The drive can then be used as external storage or as a backup device.

I've seen these tested and advertised in the UK computer press .....around £18.00 if I recall.

paid £7 for mine about 2 yrs ago
ideal for a temporay jod but and enclosure is better if going to use the drive more often.
