I've got a couple of malfunctioning HD Maxtor 541 dx

They just stop beeing recognized by the PC... (NOT the same day)
I've run the powermax V3.04 in these maxtors and they all show:

Errors UK0E02 for the Basic Quick Test and R03 for the ADvanced and Burn in  test

Also they are recognized ONLY when put as slaves...

I've seen 3 disks with the same problem, but no answer... anyone knows something?
I really need to recover my data but have no money for a data recovery company, so I'm trying to do it myself.
I'm offering 500 points for a step by step solution.

They are probably dead.

If you have at least one working one, you might try swapping the electronic board between the a working and nonworking. Do this only if you are very handy with electronics.

Otherwis, save your money and send them out to a data recovery company.

I hope this helps !

from what I've been reading out on the 'net - that drive is toast.:

and apparently you are not the only one having these problems with Maxtor drives.

YOu would only do this if the drive is bad, as an extreme last measure, when the data is important to get. It may work (somtimes yes, sometimes no) but can be done an any drive
and by damage, to the drive, you wouldn't do it to a good drive LOL
