... you could try ubuntu ...do'nt install it just boot up with the created cd with the usb device plugged in

... ubuntu should be able to see it to enable you to copy to main drive

... it might be worth hooking up the usb drive to another (friends(?) pc to see if its your pc (reg fault) or the drives!

well i already tried it on an other PC but its exactly the same.
The hard disk look open it has blue light ( shows that works
normaly ) but it just wont read it ! Its like i formated the hard disk
With the system files ( the one that are resposible so the PC
read it ) but such a thing never happened it just stop working!
just like that !

... it might be worth taking the harddrive out of its enclosure and hooking it up direct as slave drive, select the correct jumper setting and make sure its set in the bios as slave

... its still worth using ubuntu to see what that will find!
