So, this past weekend my lappy fried. It wasn't a huge loss. The laptop was kinda crappy, but I have some stuff on the hdd I want. I figured it would be as easy as poping it in an external enclosure and hooking it up to another compy. When I plug it into my macbook, it never registers at all... which I kinda figure is because it's an NTFS formatted hdd, but when I hook it up to my bud's Windows XP laptop, it went through the install thing, then said there was an error in the installation. I really don't want to have to download 30GB of music, lose all my ripped DVD's, all my photos, everything. However, I cannot justify spending umpteen $ on a professional recovery. Anyone have any tips?
