    You can get an adapter to hook up the 2.5 inch drive to your desktop, attach it as a slave to your IDE cable and try to access the drive that way.

    An example is here. Most computer stores will have them.

    thats done the trick jimbo, 19.99 sterling from maplin, thanks a million

    midknyte the reason there was no back up was they were the back up the originals were on a 4gb cf card that got stolen with my bag in hong kong, the epson was the back up and i dropped it whilst connecting it to my computer to download the pics, "theres many a slip twixt cup and lip" as the saying goes

    thanks again jimbo

    You could also try an external USB laptop drive enclosure.

    Why weren't you backing up your photos in the first place? Even if you have an external repository, that's not a backup. Backup means you have 2 or more copies.

    ah that sucks. 300£ seems pretty reasonable. Ontrack or Drivesavers probably aren't gonna be any cheaper.
