If you plugged the laptop harddrive into the external caddy and plugged it into another pc, it sounds like the harddrive is password protected which is a whole different matter. Try here http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=101&threadID=219717&start=0

More likely it's just windows 'protection' the original drive might have been password protected on the user.....
