    Hi Mate,

    You could give Winternals Administrator ago. It boots from a cd and reads in from your hdd, will even read NTFS. Very good app and costs alot less than sending the hdd away for recovery.

    You could also try GetDataBack for FAT32 or NTFS. This would involve slaving the broken hdd off of another pc.

    Both of these options rely on the fact that the hard drive can spin and read the data written on it.

    Good Luck

      another thing i once tried out of desperation was to create an image of the faulty disk using norton ghost 2003. i then extracted the data from the image file using the ghost explorer.

      again, as DeanPorter say, the drive needs to be spinning and you need to be able to read data from it.

        If the drive WON'T spin, try putting it in a freezer for 15-20 minutes. This action sometimes allows you a FINAL chance at retrieving the data. This is a LAST CHANCE option only.

            problably it has nothing to do with detecting master/slave.


            any noice must be a mechanical problem, and what mechanic in a Harddrive?

              This has been going on a couple of days now. I hope you have your data backed up and safe.
              Personally, if I had a HDD that was making a mechanical noise I would backup the data (that I already had backed up), check the warranty on the drive and toss it out if warranty had expired.
