If that fails, pick up a new drive and stick the failed drive in a couple zip lock bags and in the freezer for an hour or 2. Remove, then try using the HDD. If it does work, transfer everything off the failed HDD to the new one asap!
Not sure but, I don't think the HDD is even powering up. I can't get it far enough away from the case to listen, an as you know, having your head almost inside an overclock.net users rig is pretty noisy lol. And the freezer trick been on my mind since it happened lol just need some bags.
To everyone else, yes I tried new cables, different ports etc an no luck, dunno what the hell happened to it either!
I know I can download my games again but, I only get 30GB a month and I had maybe like a 300/400GB steam folder haha.
