USB 2.0 to IDE Converter Questions

negativefactor

..of the vast oceans.
#1
The motherboard in my PC recently died leaving me using my tablet PC. I want to be able to retrieve the data from my old HDD (previously in my PC) but obviously I can not connect it directly to my tablet. I am considering purchasing a USB to IDE converter so I can pull the data from my old hard drive but I have a few questions I need answering first. My old hard disk drive has partitions on it, 4 of them in fact, can the USB to IDE converter handle partitions? Will the drive be seen as an actual hard disk or will it appear as a mass-storage device?

Hope someone can help me!

Get an external drive enclosure. It does USB to IDD, partitions do not matter. It's just like it was plugged into the PC.

Cheapest I've found (I have one) is the Bytecc 5.25 inch for $25.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
