Toshiba laptop HDD failed?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am trying to help a friend out with her laptop that will not boot, It has Vista and will get to the Starting Windows screen then does nothing else.

I have taken the HDD out and put it into a hot swappable bay in my computer to see if I could just get the data off it for her as she isn't worried about making it useable again just wants her pictures/documents off.

It recognizes the drive and puts it in the drive list with my other drives but never shows used or avaliable space and when I try to open it I get an error after about 5 min of load time thats says Drive not accessible. Incorrect function.

She says it may have been dropped so I'm imagining all the problems are do to that can anyone tell me how I might could get it to at least temporarily function to perform some data recovery or any other suggestions.


Thanks
