Hi, My macbook is dead, I will take it to be examined to find out the costs for repairs. But in the meantime I wondered if anyone has any experience in getting the data from the internal hard drive. Some time ago my external WD hard drive stopped being recognised and I replaced its external casing and that solved the problem. Is there something similar you can do with internal drives - ie buy a case/housing for it and connect it to another computer via USB? Can you retrieve iPhoto data and music files if the other computer was running on windows? Thanks in advance for any information.
