Have you tried Spinrite, it's apparently very good.
Thanks for that. Can't do any harm.
Currently stealing, like.
Feedback on whether it be any good would be appreciated.
This is like a hybrid bastard son of hard-on world and soft-gay world
Nah, looks like the old drive is comprehensively knackered to the max.
XP makes that ding dong sound when I put the USB in and the drive tries to power up but then it just dies again so XP doesn't recognise it as another drive.
Which means I can't install Spinrite onto the drive so it can do it's thang, like. Well and truly banjaxed. Time to give up, I think.
Cheers anyway for the effort. I'll just have to re-steal all my orsum stuffs, I suppose.
That hard drive in the freezer trick is officially a pile of wank. Don't do it, kids.
