Re: Son of Winmodem
I've been considering getting one of those gizmos to assist in salvaging the 320 GB HD, which still has its demons with being recognized. My understanding is that the USB device accesses the drive through the OS rather than through the BIOS, so I thought there was a chance it might work better that way.

I'm happy to see you've been delivered some good news for a change! The worst experiences come from trying to use a harddisk the new PCs no longer connect to. But I got a USB-driven device that has hookups for various types of harddisks. Even if it's from a laptop, my Ubuntu-powered desktop can read it now. It's sure to be a godsend to anyone who wants me to help migrate their files from an old PC to a newer one.
