I have a hard drive that died as i was just installing another drive to make a back up. How ironic is that ? The drive will no longer spin. It does not do any clicking noise which I know is something some do when there is a head crash So my guess and the one of a Nashville studio tech is that there was a power failure on the drive that lead to the drive not spining at all. The Bios kindda recognizes it, but windows XP does not. So, I contacted Western Digital (the manufacturer) for tech support. They recomended sending the drive to a hard Disk recovery place. Their recovery price range goes from $700 to $3000 which I know it may be pricey but I am willing to pay so I can get some track I had there back. Has anyone ever send their drive to such places? if so, did it work? W. Digital has partnerships with few companies and they claim they can get the stuff back in %95 of the cases including fire, water, and severe damage. is that True? Any comments are appreciated. thanks Jose Arbelaez Sound Eng. Nashville, TN PD: sry about the long msg, but I wanted to be as detailed as possible.
