Don't know if this is forbidden, but I can give you 2 tips:

1). LimeWire
2.) Bittorrent

Props for the great suggestion Radeon915, that's actually how I was able to restore all of my old files. Also since my last post I've put the drive into an external enclosure and had no problems getting it to format. So I guess I have either a bad SATA cable or connections on the motherboard. I hope its just a cable as that would be far easier than having to send my motherboard back to the manufacturer!
