Re: computer crash!

You can try going here: it lets you copy everything off your ipod and load it back onto your computer. My computer has crashed twice now, well once a hard drive went bad and the second time I broke a pin on the other hard drive. So I've lost my music twice. I do recommend backing it up...constantly. Take it from me

Re: computer crash!

Try using the boot disk to boot the system and then enter fdisk /mbr to fix the master boot record. It doesn't destroy any data on a computer. There is a professional data recovery businesses that could probably recover that data - but at a cost. They are expensive and advertise in PC Magazines. Take care because there could be a lot of rip-off merchants in this business. In future, buy two hard drives ans use the free XXCopy from to clone your system from one drive to the other. A good way to back-up your system is to get a second hard disk of the same or greater capacity, and use the free XXCopy from to make a clone of your system. If the BIOS allows it, you can then set the BIOS to boot to the alternative drive to run the cloned system, format the drive containing the defective system, clone the cloned system back to the main drive, set the BIOS to boot from the main drive, and you are back in business. You can keep the spare hard disk drive stored in a safe place ready to be reinstalled in an emergency, or to update the cloned system. You install XXCopy according to the instructions that come with it. To clone the C: drive to a D: drive enter the following command in the Start => Run box - xxcopy c:\*.* d:\ /clone It is as simple as that XXCopy will open a DOS window and clone the c: drive to the other drive specified in the command.

Dissapeared songs

My guess is that the crash caused damage to the file system. This corruption may or may not erase the songs, but the only way to recover from such a crash would be to reformat your mp3 player which will result in erasure of all the songs in it. Formatting it will reset it to factory defaults and you should be able to reload your mp3 player and rock on!  Good Luck!

Distinct clicking, right? Your hard drive is about to crash completely. Other than the ticking, your problems are probably because the hard drive is not giving out the information it needs to because it can't. You need either a new Hard drive or a new player. once you get it all of you problems should go away.
