If the HDD is still accessible, it still is possible to do a manual recovery. Just connec your HDD to a working computer using a SATA - SATA or SATA - USB or if you have a desktop computer, IDE connector and copy the files to a working computer.

That is a job for a professional. there are several companies on the web that specialize in Data Recovery. some are very costly and some not so much. if you still want to try this i would get 2 old hard drives and practice on them. then you can see what a chore this is.

What do I do to Eclipse fix mp3 when it diplays "Disk Error!" upon attempting to play music?


Presumably the error is caused by a hard disk drive? In which case the hard disk will need to be checked. If there are options to do this use them. Otherwise the drive might need to be replaced.
If you bypassed the normal way of putting music onto the drive, then it might have corrupted the drive.
If there is an option to reformat the drive that might work. Or if there is a factory reset, that might correct it.
If you have music stored on the drive, which is not found anywhere else, then I think it will have been lost for good.

How can i recoup my music files from my portable drive


Yes, most likely the disk is gone.
Last hope attempt: take out the hard disk from the case and put it directly in a desktop pc; in there, if the disk still had some life left in it, try to recover your files using a recovery program.

How do recover picture and music files only from hard drive. The computer that it was attached crashed and even when I tried to restore it before it crashed the data would not transfer to the restore point...


Connect the external drive to a different computer, and "browse" the contents of the drive -- if the disk can be read, then the files can be copied, and maybe burned to "blank" writable CD/DVD disks.

I lost some files from my JVC Hard Drive Video Camera. Is there a way to restore them?


Yes, you can try some data recovery softwares such as Pandora Recovery, if the hard drive uses some other file systems, you can look for them, but they might not always be free.
