The Packard Bell Store and Save seems to be a troublesome device. If you look at these two reviews from Amazon it would appear that they have had reliability problems. And it does seems that they do not work with Win 7 see this earlier thread on this forum.

You say that you are using this with Windows XP, are you trying to transfer the data to a machine running Win 7 or XP? I ask because your title is Win 7 and you are in the Win7 Forum.

If you are in Windows 7 now and trying to read from a Store and Save drive written when you were using XP then that is why you are having a problem. If you read the second thread, the one from Yiddo1971, you will see that the reply he got from Packard Bell was that Windows 7 is not supported. I don't know how files are saved on PB's Store and Save, but I would try connecting it to a machine running XP to see if you can read the files and if so try copying a few of them to a USB stick and try to transfer them to your Windows 7 machine to see if that will work. If it does then you have a method of moving all your files over.
