Are you able to boot with WinME? If so, start WinME and when you open the windows address book, choose export address.

This is assuming that you did not delete any files from the old one with ME on it. How did you go about the install of the new disk?


Remove the new hard drive.

Change the jumper settings on the old to master and install it.

Then start the pc.

That should boot into ME again - then do your export of the address book.

Thanks I'll do that. I was hoping of a way that I didn't have to take my pc to bits again.
