Hello Family !
I have a Dell Dimension E310, with an 80GB Samsung hard drive in it. It had/has Windows Media Center on it.
The hard drive went bad and gave me the error that said.... Loading PBR for descriptor 2.....Done Bad PBR.
I replaced the hard drive with an identicle one and put a fresh install of Media Center on it.
I hooked up the bad hard drive in tandum to see if I could get my pictures off of it but the pc won't even recognize that it exsist.
How could I get mt pic's of the bad hard drive or is it a complete loss ?
I have a bootable disc of ERD Comander 2005, and that has always gotton into bad hard drives so I could retrieve personal files but this BAD PBR hard drive won't let it in.
Any suggestions ?
Any and all help will be GREATLY appreciated !

One thing that can work for a while is to put the faulty hard drive into a resealable bag and stick it in the freezer over night.
From now on, always back up any data you don't want to loose.
