    My HD crashed out of nowhere Thursday night.
    I tried a disk recovery software program Friday from a new harddrive, but the old one started banging (very very bad sound) so I disconnected it.

    This is a job for a pro service.

    There are about 2000 listed on the net.

    Can anyone recommend one for me to send my HD to?




    BTW, it was a Western Digital 250gig HD, and only 8 months old.
    So Caveat Emptor.

    WOW 250gb??

    Well you could purchase an exact replacement and swap out the circuit boards and see if that fixes the problem.

    but it has to be an exact replacement. Chips and Firmware on the hard drive circuit board get upgraded over time.

    I have had a high success rate on doing this. I have saved some pretty important data for customers and friends.

    Try it thru these guys. I've sent numerous client HD's to them and haven't been let down yet. They also do a free eval and will tell you a price upfront and have no data/no pay guarentee. It's down here in San Diego so you can ship it or drive it down.
