HDD in a caddy - am I missing something?

  onthelimit1 17:03 17 Oct 2011

Neighbour's son's laptop died. He had games he liked to play. I suggested a caddy which she bought and connected to her PC. All the files and folders can be seen, but games won't run. Thoughts, please.

You have to install the games on the PC.You can't just take a hard drive from another machine put it in a cadyy and it will function as if it's still in the old laptop.

Fait enough. At least he can recover his files.

Or even FAIR enough - where's the edit function we were promised before the recent 'upgrade'?
