I have a new win 7 machine and want to read hds from my xp machine.
I installed the cable, set the hd to master and slave. the bios is set active.
One of the drives shows up but data is not readable.
Any ideas please, and thank you.

Elaborate on what you mean by not readable. What error messages do you get?

It may be that you need to take ownership of the files.
