I have a 4GB quantum HDD. I connected it to another computer results failure. It shows a boot error ( Invalid SYstem disk). After that I connected it as a slave to my computer but is appears only in the BIOS. Some times it appears but said that invalid FAT. How can I retreive my data from the HDD.

invalid system disk usually means somethings wrong in the bios setting try setting the hard drive to auto detect lba mode or large mode. is it a fat 16 or 32? and 2what system did you take it from and what type of sytem are you trying to install it to? these questions will give me a better picture but try this first....... http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
