I have a hard drive that failed.
Its a 20gb fugitsu laptop drive. Original partiion was FAT32. At this point the system bios cannot detact see or talk to this drive. It acts as if there is no drive present. Fdisk shows that there are no disks present since it has to go through the Bios to see the drive. I have put this drive in several notbooks and niether one can see the drive in the system bios. The drive still spins and doesnt make wierd noises, Are there any data recovery tools that can recover this partition that do not rely on the system bios to talk to the drive.
