Try scanning the HD using getdataback. If it can see the files you need, register the tool so you can copy the files off.

After that remove the HD from it's USB case and attach it directly as a 2nd internal HD to your PC. If it is a 2.5" IDE HD, you will need a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter, if it is a SATA HD you can connect it directly to a SATA controller. Then run the HD manufacturer's diagnostic tool on the HD and if it finds errors it can repair, allow it to do the repairs. If it can't repair found errors, replace the HD. You'll find the manufacturer's tools on the UBCD.

Do you think I might need to Jumper the 2.5 HD so it will be recognized as a slave?

Yes, If you connect it to the same IDE controller where another Disk is attached to, it has to be jumpered as slave or cable select.

OK.  This is a usb 1.1 connection from the external HD case to the desktop PC.   Is the Jumper still required?   I dont have a jumper plug for the toshiba drive nor do I have any info regarding jumper positions.  Note:  the drive came out of an HP 7800 series laptop.  Also, I did not see the Toshiba Diagnostic software on the boot CD.

As far as GetDataBack, it scanned to sector 4036482 and then indicated "error 23 ID I  during read LBA = 4036482".  IIt went on with the same eror to LBA = 4036495 and then indicated and additional "IO error on 4036495".  The scan then locked up, I aborted the scan, updated the GDB to the current Version and am again scanning.  Thanks for your rapid attention!!  It is really helping,
SO, where do I get a jumper and what orientaion?

Don't connect it using a USB system. Connect it directly to an IDE cable of the PC. USB systems can cause additional problems, and lowlevel software won't work properly or at all. You need the jumper if it isn't master and there is another device connected to the same IDE cable.

OK, attached laptop HD as slave to Desktop, was able to acces all files and folder, copied as needed, streamlined a boot disk from the OEM XP Home SP1a and a MS XP2 disks, booted and repaired LAptop XP OS and am now running.  Did not need Get Data back and wasted the time to scan, but I learned and I now have my own bootable disc.  Did not need the Boot disc U suggested.  Thanks again
