    hi everyone.

    was just wondering if anyone could help.

    i did a back up of all files on my dell vostro 1510 onto an external hard drive about a week before it fell on the floor and is completely broken! i need to know if and how i can transfer these files which are all photos of my kids and i tunes library amongst other things onto my new samsung laptop.
    old laptop had windows vista new one has windows 7. i only really care about the photos mainly and the music and just wondered if i could get these off of the hard drive?? i can seeall of the zipped files when i plug the hard drive into my new laptop but dont wanna mess up my new laptop so dont know what to do!!

    thanx in advance
