Hi!

Unfortunately, the disk being "noisy" means that it's also mechanically damaged.
Fixing it is a job for a professional, and can not be done at home (extreme conditions are required).
In order to "rescue" your data from the hard disk, take it to a computer lab which specialized in data recovery (Use the internet to locate the closest place to you).
I should say that did procedure is generally not cheap and the price varies and depends on the HDD conditions...

Good luck,
Pelu.

HOW TO REPAIR CORRUPT MEMORY CARD (S60 MOBILE TIPS)


<br />Physically, memory cards are quite fragile pieces of high <a href="http://www.mannuforall.in/2008/03/symbian-mobile-tips-and-tricks.html#"><span>technology</span></a>, susceptible to damage from various silly things like excessive heat, condensation, strong magnetic fields, physical damage from rough handling and/or bending! (similar to most electronic devices then..)<br /><br />Given the natue of mobile memory card products, they are constantly being taken in and out of some form of interface with a mobile phone, a camera, a laptop, or desktop PC, or a separate memory card reader. The number of different devices they have to be able to interact with is in the thousands.<br /><br />It is not too surprisingly, then that sometimes the state of the file system on the memory card can get damaged.<br /><br />This may happen for a number of different reasons, including:<br /><br />* removing the card from a device whilst an application is trying to read/write to it.. (Just be patient...)<br /><br />* battery drain on a device whilst in use meaning an insufficent voltage failure whilst writing to the card.<br /><br />* a poor implementation of the MMC standard on the device using the card<br /><br />* poor connectivity software drivers on the device or the Windows PC/Mac<br /><br />* physical damage like card or device being dropped, bent, getting wet etc...<br /><br /><br />As often as not, the problem is not terminal for your memory card, but just a software issue ( or in physical terms, it could be called "a temporary disalignment of the all the bits and bytes on the card").<br /><br />The fix for this problem is the same as for any other file storage device (like a floppy or hard drive) with corrupt or invalid file system, namely; re-format the file system.<br /> <br /><br />

It sounds as if your SD card has failed. It may be physically (electrically) damaged. Do NOT put the card in your camera any more, as it could make things much worse.
You may be able to use a disk recovery program to get some or (hopefully) all the files off of the card. Be patient when using any programs like that - they can take several hours or even a couple of days to get the data off of a bad card.
If you are linux savvy at all, you can use the program "ddrescue" to recover the files. It may also work on a Mac in the commandline.
Another possibility is that the card is physically ok, but the filesystem is corrupted. Using a filesystem repair program could work in this case, such as "chkdsk" on Windows, or "fsck" on Linux or Mac.
I had the same thing happen with a 4GB Sandisk SD card back in May and was able to recover 95% of the data using ddrescue. My card was electrically damaged and had to be replaced.
There are also disc recovery companies that will do data recovery from a damaged or corrupted card, but they are quite expensive ($500-$3000, depending on difficulty of recovery).
I do it sometimes for others for reasonable. www.ruelphoto.com
I will also assist you in any way I can and have time for.

My Samsung 250 GB portable HDD is not recognised now. It was working for last 2 years without any problem. Recently I found my PC infected by "WIN32" & Torjan viruses. It may be the reason. But I tried...


Try connecting it to another computer.
If it does not work, then either the disk-drive has failed,
or the USB-cable is damaged,
or the USB-to-disk-drive interface inside the case has failed.

Is the SAMSUNG still under warranty? (1 year? 2 years? 3 years?)
If so, SAMSUNG will replace it, at minimal cost to you.

Error message, need help


1. Turn off laptop, unplug all devices and cables.
2. Flip laptop upside down on towel (avoids scratches)
3. Open the PCI panel (you need screwdriver to fit screws)
4. remove the PCI card inside (probably 3rd party WIFI card)
5. reattach AC/PSU cable and start laptop
6 If it starts properly now, you either had a bad PCI card, or it was improperly installed. You can try installing it again (turn everything off first). Sometimes this error is just from the card getting loose, or oxidation on contacts. Insert and remove it 2-3 times to see if it works then. Let me know.
