I had windows 2000 on my pc and decided to install linux, but i didnt want to go through the trouble of having to operating systems on one HD. so i put in an old HD that i had lying around. It worked fine for a while so I decided to copy my music from my other HD to this one. the problem is I did cut and paste because i thought it would save time. since they are two separate HDs, it wont but i wasnt thinking. I had to go to work and I left the computer copying. When I came home I went to see what happened and it seemed to work and then it froze up. when i rebooted the bios could not detect the hd. i remember having this problem with the hd in the past, but only after it screwed up. I has nothing to do with jumpers or cables because my other hd still works, but this one doesnt work secondary which makes the primary hd not work because it thinks its jumpered wrong. if you know of anyway for me to get my data off my hd with paying a lot of money, please give me a suggestion.
