Backup data on a damaged HDD
Posted on 2004-10-20
Hi you all, I´m in a big problem this time, apparently one HDD i have is damaged at least in the MBR sector, the problem is I have lot of data valuable to me and I´m unable to access to the disk in order to burn all this files in Cds.
I already tried to connect this HD to different PCs as slave disk, but when i turn on the PC the BIOs loading page display a message similar to this:
"Pri-Master Atapi incompatible"
Or something like this and it seems to enter in some kind of conflict with the primary master HD because windows XP (machines where i tested this have windows XP) is unable to start and BIOS can´t detect even the primary master device.
Well that´s all for the background of the problem. Now I need to now if there is a technique or way to save all the data in the apparently damaged Hard Drive because is really important to me.
Thanks in advance.
