OK. Dead Gateway laptop. Pulled out HD (Toshiba) and installed it in a IDE external case (yes it does fit). Plugged it to USB port (Windows XP OS computer). Icons say new hardware found. Ready light on external drive goes green, then red. BUT, I can't find access to the now external HD. Go to Windows Explorer, double click "computer". Drive isn't there. Redo everything except restart. Computer is work computer which limits downloads so there may be some security there and the IT police wont let us have access. Anybody have any good ideas?? Thanks.
