I will guess that your old drive is IDE and your new drive is
SATA. Do you have a computer wonk friend with an IDE
motherboard? She could temporarily install your old drive as a
second hard drive, and put your contacts on a USB stick.
Or you could buy one of these enclosures:
Install your old drive in the enclosure and connect it to the new
computer via USB cable. This method allows you to get ALL the
data from your old drive, and also lets you use the old drive to
back up data from all of the computers in your house.

I had a computer crash....motherboard gone, but hard drive saved.
Unfortunately the hard drive was not compatible with the new
motherboard. A new hard drive was installed and most of the
contents of my previous hard drive were transferred to the new
hard drive. Unfortunately all of my e-mail contacts on the old
hard drive did not make it over.
Is there anyway that I can get the contact list from my old hard
drive imported into the new drive?
I am getting desparate...
