I believe my hard drive died . I have an old IDE WD hard drive 80gb, got it from a friend in 05 (not sure how long he had it before that). I primarily used it for backing up old stuff like personal photos and videos definitely not for everyday use. Earlier today I hooked it up to a IDE USB connector and turned it on to access some data and got a not so friendly - click beep click beep - type of sound. First thing that came to mind is "oh noes it died ". My PC wouldn't recognize anything connected either and I don't really know where to go from here. Is there anything I can do on my end? Or am I screwed and it'll take a specialist and lots of $$$ to save any data? While most everything on there is of personal nature I really don't just wanna give it up. I really should of backed everything up on a new HDD but I just didn't get around to it . So weird too I still have 3 old drives from the late 90's (20-30gbs) which have been used way more and they still work nicely but have no data on them figured they'd go first. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
