Welcome to LQ

Connect the old drive, mount it and copy the files ?
Look in
Code:
dmesg
to see if the drive is recognized.
Then mount the drive
Code:
mount /dev/sdx /mnt
replace /dev/sdx with the name of the drive you see in dmesg

i tried to mount but showed this error "mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'"and "mount: you must specify the filesystem type
".according to me mounting is not possible until it is been formatted by linux filesystem

i thought u could find some new methods so these are the last lines from the command "dmesg"...
hda: drive_cmd: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hda: drive_cmd: error=0x04 { DriveStatusError }
ide: failed opcode was: 0xb0
hdd: drive_cmd: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdd: drive_cmd: error=0x04 { DriveStatusError }
ide: failed opcode was: 0xb0
hdd: drive_cmd: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdd: drive_cmd: error=0x04 { DriveStatusError }
ide: failed opcode was: 0xb0

What command did you used to mount the drive ?
Linux can mount window drives.
However, to mount ntfs, you need NTFS kernel support
Take a look at
