    Hi, I'm having problems, and was wondering if anyone here could help.

    To make a long story short, my computer broke recently, and while i was fixing it i ended up using my girlfriend's as a "parts tester" of sorts. In the process, her hard drive stopped working. There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the drive, but it won't detect in the POST as an IDE drive, no matter where i have the jumpers or which cable it's on...

    All the data recovery places seem to charge hundreds of dollars (which i don't have), but she would like to have her stuff off of here... any suggestions?

    Try it in a third system? Even if it doesn't show up in the BIOS, sometimes it will show up in windows. This may seem wrong, but there is a computer in the room next to me that has been working this way for about 6 months now.
