    Umm. That's bad. If there's actually a problem with the hardware (which it sounds like there is), and the data on there is important enough to pay a chunk o money for, then you'll have to take it to someone who will either try and replace the circuit board on it, or remove the platters and put them in another drive. It won't be cheap though. And even then there's no guarantee...

    Sorry, Be...

    There are ways to recover information from a dead drive. If I recall correctly, you have a mac, right? take it down to the mac store and show them at the genius bar. They will take it in to get repaired *and* try and recover as much data as they can from the drive.

    there we go, just right. keep walking...

    I hate dead hard drives!
    I lost a ton of good music back in the day because of that.
    But then I met my good friend MR. Raid 5.

    I tried to buzz you, but no answer. Did you get it to an apple store? How much did it set you back?

    In a kindred spirits sort of thing, a hardrive of mine decided to also take the last train to crapsville. Mine thankfully was a secondary drive though so i think i just lost a huge game i had loaded up on it.

    Which brings me to my statment of ...there are two things which can drive me insane....

    1. My parrot named Fuzzy.

    And

    2. Issues with my computer

    Good luck on retrieving things. Hopefully you can. I've had my computer die where i lost it all and wasn't the happiest of campers.
    I do not suppose I shall be remembered for anything. But I don't think about my work in those terms. It is just as vulgar to work for the sake of posterity as to work for the sake of money.

    I don't have any suggestions beyond what's already been said, but I gotta tell ya that I can empathize with ya, Be. I've lost maybe 3 hard drives. Fortunately, most of the stuff was replaceable or already backed up, but there were a few things, like my family tree, that I worked so hard on... just gone. Just plain gone.
    I'd love to set up a RAID system, but I don't know how, and I don't have that kind of money to spend on more hard drives.

    When a woman is in labor, medical people stick their entire hands up into the vaginal. More than once.

    They had to reach in like that because your son was a difficult birth. He was born with a full afro.
