I just want to know if there is possibility to make the HD work again in full functional after it has been damage mechanically (weird noise heard once it connected).
I had one HD produced weird noise when connected but waiting for a while the system will detect the HD but either access or checking the condition of the HD is not possible. It just hanging-up until the "explorer" failed to respond.
i read some document telling that the weird noise is a sign of HD dying...but they always used the word "might" which give me hope and chance to save it but i don't have any idea.
If you have any idea (guys out there!) how to do it pls let me know...by the way iam using laptop and my HD is connected externally via usb 2.0 and have no destop available.
