[HELP] CANNOT get files from old HDD onto current system

Hi all

Basically my laptop very suddenly died on its a**e today. On it was a Linux mint, and Win7 Install. Now I rarely used it I just want a few documents, pictures etc from the HDD. It absolutely will not boot so I have it plugged into the desktop.

The issue is of course the ownership of the folders. I have tried all sorts, including the registry edit that gives you the option of taking ownership. I just cant get in!!

Note that when I manually tried to take the ownership it told me the drive was write protected.

Please help, this is really starting to P**S me off
