I have a digital-audio hard disk recorder (Roland VS880) that
uses an internal Laptop IDE hard drive. I once forgot to turn it
off for a week! Unfortunately, the (dumb?) OS in the VS880
kept on spinning the HD drive continuously. When I found out
that I didn't turn it off, I huriedly shut it down. The bad part is
that when I rebooted, the HD went dead, along with all my data.
Has anyone encountered such a problem with Laptop HDs?
Is there any chance to resurrect the HD or extract the data?
I know this is a shot in the dark, but I wanted to ask anyway.
I can do some electronics if needed.
