You get to ask a data recovery firm specializing in reviving data from dead HDs; it takes $200 to ask usually, plus a spare HD to pull the data to. It's better if you kept backups. Alternately, you can analyze the disk and attempt to ameliorate its issues (e.g. salt bridges, burnt out or shorted spindle motor coils and drivers, analog frontend failure) or extract the winchester in your own 00 cleanroom, spin it up around an appropriate magnetic head, and decipher the physical recording ephemera Samsung used to record your stuff.

Iomega 2 tb ego dead

This is an external HDD, right ? In such case it's good to realise, such devices are a combination of an external USB enclosure and an internal SATA Harddisk. Maybe the harddisk is still OK, but the PCB (print with all tiny electronic components soldered at it) is defective. In such case you can overcome your problem by simply buying a new USB enclosure (even non-name will do) and put your harddisk in it.
To check if the harddisk is damaged, you should remove this by opening the Iomega casing and connect this disc inside a PC to it's motherboard. If the harddisc is working again, you're lucky. If not, than even the harddisk is damaged. If this is, and the data at your disc is important, you can try to source a identical harddisk (brand, type and productiondate) and transplant it's PCB. But, I can asure you, this last option is a tricky step.

I have an Amana refrigerator door light switch part# C8967502 that is no longer being made. Is there another mfg. who makes a switch that could replace the original Amana switch Thank you Denis Subler

I'd think that any of the local appliance repair shops would have an old stock of those replacement switches. Sure, maybe Amana doesn't have them, they dump old stock, but they dump them to repair shops!
In any case, any "normally open" switch can be retrofitted, even in-frame burglar alarm contacts can be used for that application. The switch when pressed IN is open, not letting power come to the bulb. When the door opens, the switch pops out and "closes" the circuit to let power to the bulb.
You may even find on available to retrofit, at Radio Shack.

Reformat my PC (hard disk)

Don't Format your PC, Lonhank. I Guess the person who installed your OS, was wise enough to leave the admin account password-free. To have a try just boot your PC, in the safe mode (Pressing F8 key at boot).
Then enter the username: Administrator Password: (Empty, I mean leave blank)
If you are able to enter the account, Just change the password and you can also make a new admin or anything you can.
If you got anymore queries, don't hesitate to reply.
If I was helpful, kindly do Rate! Regards.

About Harddisk Problem


To my knowledge, NDD stands for Norton Disk Doctor and is part of the Norton System Utilities marketed by Symantec. This, I believe, is an old product and has been replaced by Norton System Works.

In effect the function of the NDD is similar to Scandisk of Windows.

Alternately, Samsung/TriGem has their own set of Utilities, one of which is Disk Manager.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
