One trick I have learned as a technician, when the problem is data-read errors off the plattersthemselves, is to freeze the hard drive overnight. It makes the data more 'readable,' but for a

one-shot deal. If this data is critical, and you have a replacement hard drive (which, if it's a drive failure, you probably do), then you can hook up your frozen hard drive and immediately fetch the data off before it warms up. 

or if you have deal with dead head
you must get same type and model hdd
then replace the platter with your original hdd platter
you need kindda special screwdriver and the patter must not touched and dusty

then connect the replaced platter hdd to your computer

please rate!

How do i install a used hard drive into an eMachines T2341? The hard drive still has information on it. do i set it as master, slave, or cable select? hard drive is an IBM 10.1 gb

There are two possible solutions depending on how your desktop is setup.
#1 install the 2nd hard drive and put jumper to CABLE SELECT. When you start the computer it should now appear in the bios as a SLAVE or 2nd hard drive. If not go to #2 below
#2 Turn system off again and change jumper on 2nd hard drive to SLAVE.
Now when your computer restarts it will appear in your bios correctly as the 2nd drive/SLAVE.
Do not make it "MASTER" or you will be trying to boot up to this drive and it may not work as you planned.

FYI: "Cable Select" means the hard drive determines which one is Master and which one is Slave by where it is on the data cable.

Good Luck

I have just removed a IBM Deskstar (DTLA-307015) from my desktop and installed into a external enclosure just turned it on and it worked without installing any drivers. I want to know is this set up right?...

since you said that the HDD works you have nothing nto worry, that means you have installed it correctly. as for clearing it up suggest you do a complete format. when you plug in the USB the pc will assign a drive name to it. note it down. the right click my computer/manage/disk managment(from the left panel) right click on the drive you noted down & format.
