Okay, I am new to this forum and not a 'techie', but I have a problem/question and am seeking help. I have searched the forums here and found parts of the answer to my question, but since electronics is not my specialty, I still am unsure ... so here's my question:
I have owned a Liteon LVW-5045 for several years. The optical drive no longer works at all (apparently a common problem). I am done with this machine. However, I'd like to get the many videos that are on the hard drive off. Without the DVD burner working, how can I do this? I would like to remove the hard drive and copy all files to my mac (running OSX 10.5.8). Is this possible? If so, is is possible for a novice like me? Although a novice, I have done quite a bit of general computer upgrades, like replacing hard drives, adding memory, etc. so I can do the moving and connecting, just don't know if it will work. Thanks in advance.
