Thanks so much, i posted and you replied so quickly. I was wondering what type of place i should look for. There's a best buy with a geek squad but i've seen them mis diagnose a couple of friends' pieces of technology and i'm not sure if that's the greatest place. Any suggestions?

Sorry I didn't notice your new question, you can add comments to the existing ones and I will be alerted much quicker.
As for your location, I would think your best options would be Armor-IT in Saskatchewan, Canada, or CBL Data Recovery in New York State.
If it turns out to be a Basic recovery, Armor-IT is cheaper and usually faster, however if it requires a clean room you will need to have them transfer it to a facility like CBL for the higher end services.
Armor-IT operates through email contact: armor-it @ shaw.ca or by phone 3 0 6 2 2 2 1 6 8 3.
If you choose CBL let me know and I will get a case # opened for you and reply back with it.

Quick format only marks the disc as empty.
Try performing a CHKDSK /F /X /R C:
also do a full format next time, you may want to replace the hard drive, or you could try a program like HDD REGENERATOR or SPINRITE to fix it. These programs may not fix the hard drive as if it is too damaged but they may help in some problems.
Try a new enclosure, the case is just that. A hard drive cannot actually repaired. You cant open it and fix it. It's either reliable and functioning or not. Purchase a new enclosure and test the old drive. Data recovery should be the last option..most places charge a down payment on a car, and most of the time ( in my 12 years ) its the cheap enclosure.
