If she gets a case you just open both HD;s and drag the pics across into a folder on new PC



so it would be as easy as just plugging it into the pc once she gets a case for the hard drive?

What operating system was she running on her system?

If it's windows XP then chances are the content protection will kick in and it'll you keep saying you don't have access to the folder - the best way to do is would probably download a Linux Live CD and use that to copy stuff across as Linux pays little attention to windows permissions.
