luckily the new computer also running windows XP reconized the drive when booted in safe mode with command prompt. I ran "chkdsk/f" followed by the drive name which fixed some memory locations and when I put the the bad drive back in the old computer it booted right up and had to run "chkdsk/f again on that computer and the computer runs beautifully.

thanks guys I thought I should post the fix which I stumbled by trial and error, I am not a computer viz

Ok fine, good job.

I have a suggestion my friends, when going for trial versions of Data Recovery software, first try a demo recovery to make sure recovery software working perfecty. If not there is a risk for loosing your data permanently.
