How do I get a Vista laptop to open an external XP hard drive (both HP)?

By Slugprocessor ·
I've connected an HP Pavilion Media Center hard drive (xp) to a Compaq laptop (Vista). The laptop recognizes the HP_RECOVERY section of the drive, but not the main portion. It shows up as Local Disk(G:) and with corrupted file or directory, but I know this is not the case.

Sounds like the XP volume was not dis-mounted correctly..

..Did the Pavilion machine crash? Is this disk "on its way out" and you're trying to save what you can?

If so, you may say so, we don't normally bite here.. ;-)
