my maxtor has been okay, just switched over my master to a 74gig raptor due to the lack of speed though. Sorry to hear of your misfortune, but bloodstains is correct in suggesting setting it as a slave on another sys to see if it is salvagable...

This is why you back data up, you could have bought like 4 hard drives for the price to recover one. Tut tut.

Putting it into another Computer will most likely not solve your problem. As another computer will want to formate the drive you will have to have it as a slave in your current system and try and repair it from another windows installation.
