Yeah, I think it might be dead.

I had to "CSI Enhance" the recording to make the hard drive sounds come out.

It's a great mic, and works really well for voice. It also works well for other types of recordings too.....

Spin Rite is still trying to get past that part on the drive... not sure if it will be able to do so.

Sounds like a rainy night in Georgia with background crickets. Who made the HD?

is it a SCSI ?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

It is in an HP laptop.... not sure of the make. However, SpinRite got pas the bad part and is crunching through the rest of the drive with no problem. smile.gif

We shall see if it was enough to make Windows bootable.....

SpinRite completed the main "recover data" process. I am now having it go back and refresh the hard drive's surfaces. Naturally, this is taking a bit longer.

During the first pass, one chunk of data was found to be "unrecoverable." I am not sure if Vista will boot now, but We shall see. I was getting a "Missing or corrupted NLS data" error on boot before.

I've heard stories that SpinRite may have determined that data was unrecoverable, but the drive subsequently worked. We shall see!

Woke up this morning, and tried to boot the machine back into Windows. No joy. Still getting the "Missing NLS data" error.

I t was worth a shot.
