The hard drive was corrupted but the worm virus. Worms will eat data and can change the data to what it wants (to destroy anything). If you can not do an open with to open your data with the correct program.
Have you tried setting the jumpers on the new drive to CS (cable select) If you use that setting, the position of the drive on the cable determines whether it is master or slave. For example, the plug at theend of the IDE cable is the master and the plug in the middle of the cable would be slave. Just a suggestion. If you are using SATA, this does not apply.
first of all here is the explanation of what has happened to drive c:
unfotunately the damaged area in your hard drive is in c most probably drive c is unusable any more .
the reason that u see 2 windows xp professional at start up is that there was an incomplete windows instalation in drive c.
i think drive d is safe but since the hard disk is still under warranty i strongly advice you to give it back and get a new one.
Well, in your case your external may corrupt. The solution is format the drive and then try some so-called data recovery software. After finishing the format option. Do it as follows.
Connect your hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform data recovery. Get the program from its site. data recovery (for Windows OS) Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)
Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem!
