I have a HDD that came out of my now dead Dell. bios fail that all model 4800's get but not warranteed. (how special) anyway, The 120gig hdd is a seagate Barracuda ultra ata 120gigs model 7200.7 I was thinking of an external enclosure to see if I can archive my music and documents off the drive. It is NTFS formatted XP Pro. Can my iMac read it ok? I want to get my files off then maybe format. I was thinking about trying to make it a crossover boot drive in xp but then cannot see any reason to ever want windows again in my life! Should this drive and format work ok as an external short term? any special needs or tricks I need to know about? Thanks!
