    We have a dell Inspiron 9300. We keep getting the BSOD with the system 32 error. We don't have the OS disc, just the disc from dell. So we know we are going to have to set the computer back to factory settings. However, we want to get our pictures off of the hard drive before we do this.
    We were thinking of using an enclosure to get the pictures off of the hard drive. Has anyone ever used one before? Also, how do we know what kind of hard drive we have ( PATA/EIDE..etc) to know which enclosure will work with the hard drive? Any help would be greatly appreciated! We want to save our wedding and honeymoon pictures!!!

    there is a device out now that will allow you to slave either one using usb port - it is a USB 2.0 TO SATA/IDE adaptor - it works with ide, sata, and laptop hard drives - i use one almost daily and i love it - you can get it online - we carry them in the store for 30 bucks - cool thing is you never have to shut your system down to slave in the hard drive - for me that is a big thing because i may slave in 5 a day sometimes- anyway - that is one route you can go
