I think ive lost all my music, it recognises a usb mass storage deveice but isnt coming up on my computer, any ideas??
also google file recovery software. you will pick up stuff that will steal your files back before the drive dies
when I plug it in it makes a 'dur-da dur-da dur-da' sound then falls silent
Put it in the freezer... in cling film.
It might make the hard drive parts contract, stop the 'dur-da dur-da dur-da' sound and spin as it is meant to.
it will mean defrosting the freezer with a hammer again first
I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT HEARD THE IMPERIAL MARCH FROM STAR WARS THERE, RIGHT? RIGHT?!
seriously, you can blame ken for ANYTHING
he doesnt even live here anymore
but, i blame ken, i've not lived with him for years, but ken = why i broke my flat mates plate the other day.
so it may have been his fault
OH for fucks sake.
ken = the wind.
not pc world, a little independent store.
Mine had this problem a few years back and i took it to a small firm in Milton Keynes who managed to recover all my music, photos and films/tv shows it took a while, but they sorted it.
Much better idea than using recovery stuff from microsoft, as once you've tried and failed it will have wiped the first layer of data off and be more timely and expensive to have a company drill down to the second level of data.
