Hi,i have a problem getting a second hard drive to work,which came from an old computer which has packed up.The reason I want to access the second hard drive is to get some photos from it.
I connected it up with a new computer,first of all trying to boot straight from it.That didn't work so I changed it to a slave and managed the first time to acess the photos,This was only loosely connected and when I pushed the computer back the wire strap was strained and the connection to plastic holder which ties in with the strap and the pins came disconected.On replacing the strap with a new one, I can't boot into the pc.unless I first disconnect the slave.I have tried starting with the slave disconnected then connect it when pc has booted in to windows but still can't acess slave HD.
I would appreciate any ideas how I could access these photos,I know this is a hard one.

Put it in an external enclosure.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

The drive may have been ruined when it disconnected or if you reconnected it when the power was on.

Obama's a 2012'er. That explains EVERYTHING..
