I have valuable data on my old drive which I do not wish to loose. Is there any way I can retrieve the data on my old Hard Drive?
Any help given would be appreciated. Thanks!
SATA does not follow a Slave / Master system :S
I think you moved jumpers that tell the hard drive what speed of interface it's using or somethign simmilar.
