WD SATA Drive crashed...

  1. Hey I'm using Windows XP SP2. I'm using a LAN PARTY Rev. A motherboard.

    My WD SATA 300Gb harddrive recently crashed. Came up with the Blue screen of death. I unplugged it and my computer returned to normal, but if I plugged it in. Windows would automatically restart. I'm wondering if there is a way to save the data that was in there by setting it as a slave? As you can see, if there was a way...I don't know how because SATA usually doesn't need setting up boot pins, but it does have it available. Please help me... there is alot of important data. Thanks.

    The harddrive that crashed is a Western Digital 300gb SATA HD.

    here's some info on the blue screen.

    Technical Information:

    Stop: 0x00000024 (0x001902F8, 0xF7C5EB68, 0XF7C5E868, 0XF76D98E9)

    NTFS.SYS - Address F76D98E9 base at F76CA000, DateStamp 3b7dc5d0

    Try repairing the drive using HDD regen.
    You can also try to mount it from a linux boot cd, and copying the files to a PATA drive.
    SATA automatically addresses Master / Slave status depending on what interface / cable the drives are pluuged into.
