Hi all!! Please help me! It's very very important and urgent!!! My HDD (ATA, Samsung MP0804H112004) is not detected any more. Neither BIOS can detect it, nor OS (I tried WinXP and Linux. Rescue CDs and etc. I also tried). I tried it as primary and slave, with different PCs, different jumpers possitions, etc, etc... Nothing help. It seems (one can hear it) that HDD tries to start but can't. It remembers me problems with servers which are working in 24h/7d mode for years and one day couldn't come up after shut down. One must bring them up and they would work but problem is to bring them up. The same as with my poor HDD. I would be glad to hear any ideas. It seems I tries everything. Now the story of the crash. This morning I started my notebook as usual and it worted fine. I shut it down and make some other stuff. About 2 p.m. I tried to boot my notebook but HDD was not detected. Pretty short story. P.S. My HDD ist about 1 year and 2 months old. HDD itself does not matter for me but I MUST rescue the data on it!!!!
