hey guys, if your motherboard doesnt read the hard drive thats plugged into the primary IDE slot, is there any way of retrieving the information that was on the hard drive? maybe with a software program ?
Nope. Software needs to be able to access the drive. A professional data retrieval service could probbaly get it back by removing the platters and fitting them to another drive case, but it'd be awfully expensive.
PC boy, I've already merged two of your topics which related to this same problem. Could you PLEASE restrict your discussion of the incident/problem to the thread you originally started? This is the sort of confusion which occurs when you split it up.
