Question about IBM TravelStar 60GH 60 GB Hard Drive
At first my system was slow, then I got endless error messages on delayed write. When I tried to run scandisk it failed several times, but eventualy when I rebooted in went into scandisk automaticaly. Scandisk reported many bad sectory, bad file descriptors, etc. Eventualy it hung, and when I tried to reboot, the system went into a reboot loop. I tried connecting an USB-IDE convertor to the disk and reading the files, but it hangs my computer.
First do a fdisk
see if your drive is detected and what partitions does it show.
, then check if you can see on setup bios options.
if there on bios options.... lucky .... drive can be retrived of data.... and may be restored too.. but any clicks and sounds mean drive is ready to crash ,,back up data as it can go crash any time. more assistance 0-9-3-2-1-1-0-1-7-1-7-

Spinrite is OK but the HDD regenerator that the foreign guy made that is included on Hiren's boot disk has fixed drives that spinrite wouldn't. Download a copy of the current Hiren's boot disk and run the HDD regenerator. It also includes spinrite. Hack

SOURCE: my computer crashed
REmove the hard drive from computer, place it on a caddy and connect it to another computer, try to acces it. If accesible, recover all the data you can if not, download a recovery program from the internet.

Can you "read" any files from the external disk-drive?
Can you "delete" any files/folders from the external disk-drive?
Can you click 'File' and 'New' and 'Folder' to create a new folder on the drive?
