The simple answer is yes.
Take it out and put it in another pc and access it through My Computer, transfer the pictures etc. Job Done.
I assume it is an ide drive so you will have to change the jumper to slave if you have it on the same channel as your main Hard Drive.
If it is sata you can just plug it in.
After you have plugged it in I should run the anti-virus on it because you don't want to transfer any nasties to the good machine.
Are you sure you can't access it where it is?
Have you tried Safe mode or last good config.?
