  1. Hi All, I sent few mails to the companies which sell those products: Deepspar and Atola Imager. None of them get back to me. Are they snobs or something? Or do they bankrupt? I can't understand whay they are never answer to none of mails, asking to buy their products.
  2. Hi All, I have maxtor hard drive which does not spin, the bios see it as 0 capacity and it can be seen easily that the smooth chip is burnt. I've found this PCB on the internet, and the owner told me that firmware transfer does not required because the board has great compatibility. Those are pictures of the board and the hard drive: http://img63.imageshack.us/i/dsc03956w.jpg/ http://img101.imageshack.us/i/dsc03957b.jpg/ I bought the new PCB https://us-dc1-order.store.yahoo.net/cgi-bin/wg-order?ysco_key_event_id=&ysco_key_store_id=yhst-44463692235217&sectionId=ysco.cart&yscoc=MBBN.bkmAUfVehwWQQO4fRdFdfCNzdxQaIXEzZdASYx_P_DOHX6kV0FG6.vnh8RvuK_kT16R6oh1L908hlQp3bo8LMz7tLumjNMzriRTPwJELUQAB.LY_Z9CxSy0VbVcosF._HtMIdI9Ig--&yscos=luNMkqomAUduW1hq3WdZfB_0p859WjVBlWRG7urOmyYZOBl4V.HicSkCbRcjoFQ57lRDfedZ92SiAEMk2v0N8pZ3uV6FI6dKeeXstIoeaccJC1g2PCryYKxIxuUA3YIVTdgtnaKtjlgbhQ--&yscob=mSVJ7OkmAUema_q70hxj2N2g6wP3tGK4HHePLOpsxPLJ6LtNvTJjQtsus4kPhdvFgYcH_Wrani7AkrOktiLH8EHfUPIVKeg58fj6avUiByW2GaMglKSJUEKop5ZLVaxazQ-- But the seller told me that the PCB should arive between June 9 and June 16. I need the photos in the drive before the 11.6. Is there any way to bypass the smooth chip and recover the data with out the new pcb? By the way, what is the smooth chip? what does it do? Mant Thanks! (sorry for the spam)
  3. Hi All, I have some troubles with implementing a function that printing the linked list. This is the struct: typedef struct item { int data; struct item* next; } sItem; I need to implement this: void print_list(sItem* head) How do I do that? Many Thanks!
  4. Hi All, I have heard about GNU ddrescue which can handle with hard drive with bad sectors. Also by searching the internet I've found that there are different version of this software. What do you recommend for the best version (windows/linux)? MAny Thanks!
  5. Thanks for the informative answer! As there are softwares to create web sites, for people who don't know CSS/PHP/HTML and other stuff, is there any software for people who don't know Actionscript and all the advanced knowledge that must be have in order to create such games?
  6. Hi All, Through my searches on the internet I found this device: http://www.voomtech.com/hc3.html I have 2 randomally disconected drives and one with bad case of the read/write heads but still recognize. Is that device can be the solution for my hard drives? I mean is that can copy the drive even it disconecte itself on a randommaly time (I think the disk shut itself off after the heads read a very bad sector) Such in that case: If it do, it probably worth the money about- 1,000$ Many Thanks!
  7. pretty bad. So I guess it is not my lucky day. If I will take a piece of the magnetic sheet form another cd and cover with that the corrupted area. Is it might work or is it just a wasting of a good time?
  8. Hi All, I have this Broken CD http://img210.imageshack.us/i/dsc03959i.jpg/ http://img337.imageshack.us/i/dsc03958.jpg/ I glue the fracture but the CD hasn't been recognized in my optical drive. So I put a piece of insulating tape (isolierband) to cover the transparent area (the fracture area), but the CD still does not recognize in any CD/DVD recovery software. How can I recover some of the data? I need to cause the optical drive to jump over the corrupted area and recognize the CD. How do I do that? Many Thanks!
  9. Hi All, I want to create a game like this http://games.nana10.co.il/Article/?ArticleID=672313&sid=144&typeid=5&GameN= What development language do I have to know for this? Many Thanks!

Best Regards,
  11. Hi dencorso, You are absolutely right about the threads. The two first were mine, the others are of friends or family that are familiar with my hard drives and asked me to try and help them with their drives, after I succeded to recover mine.
  12. As said, this one : http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-ECO-desktop-fan-from-old-computer-pa/ jaclaz LOL nice one!!
  13. Thank you jaclaz, I will follow all the steps you suggested. In addition I want to buy one of those: http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=m570&_nkw=hdd+cooling In order to keep cool the hard drive. What do you recommend to buy?
  14. If YES, you should just IMAGE it, until it lasts. If it warms too much, and it stops responding, disconnect it, let it cool down, and re-try with another chunk of sectors. ANY fan will contribute to keep it at a reasonable temperature for a bit more time. ANY other means of cooling it (NOT freezing it) will contribute to keep it at a reasonable temperature for a bit more time. NEVER use anything that can create humidity, condensation or the like. If you want to spend some good $ for a nice toy, here is one, based on Maxwell's Demon : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxwell's_demon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vortex_tube If you are cheap, you can also build one in a DIY, but the "real" thing is usually more efficient: http://www.exair.com/en-US/Primary%20Navigation/Products/Vortex%20Tubes%20and%20Spot%20Cooling/Vortex%20Tubes/Pages/A%20Phenomenon%20of%20Physics.aspx http://www.exair.com/en-US/Primary%20Navigation/Products/Vortex%20Tubes%20and%20Spot%20Cooling/Vortex%20Tubes/Pages/Selecting%20the%20Right%20Vortex%20Tube.aspx Sure, it's not el-cheapo, around 300 bucks, but about 50 times more useful in a laboratory than that lame smallish fan you found for ten. Hint: get a fan from a blown out PSU you have lying around, it will be uglier but cool just as well as those you found. jaclaz jaclaz, many thanks for the helpful answer! Few things, the windows recognize the hard drive but say that it must be format first. Any bootable and windows environment images software like norton gohst and others, loose the hard drive at the start. (I gut-feeling that it somehow relate to the sector 0). When I get into the bios before I try to scan the drive in any way,the drive fully recognize and I can see it for a long time and for any further restrat, till I scan it or try to image it. At the first beggining I fixed some sectors with HDD Regenarator. But now every time I got againg to the HDD Regenarator, it loose the drive. I don't feel the drive geting hot when I touch it (It spin and every thing but not geting hot beyond the normal), so it probably relate to the sector 0 or to a defective temperature-sensor that cause the drive to be shuting down. Where the temperature-sensor locate on the drive? What will happan if I will clear the MBR with MHDD? Do you think that it somehow relate to the sector 0? By the way, something here might be help? Vortex Tubes http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m570.l1313&_nkw=vortex+tubes&_sacat=See-All-Categories http://cgi.ebay.com/VORTEX-TUBE-SPOT-COOLING-TOOL-250-PSIG-MAX-/370388424506?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Pneumatic_Hydraulic_Valves_Parts&hash=item563cded73a HDD Coolers http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=m570&_nkw=hdd+cooling It seems the beyond the tube I need a compressor too, don't I? Best Regards and many Thanks! CrazyDoctor.
  15. Is there any way to bypass the temperature-sensor? Any creative cooling methods? I don't think that table fan is effective for that case, isn't it? Mmm... what about put the hard drive in the freezer for some hours? I heared that it is the old trick but it ruin the hard drive (still far this method worked for me only one time with clicking hard drive, which mine does not clicking) The new symptom from the hard drive is that: when I connect it with usb adaptor to my computer, I get from windows a pop message that I have to format the drive. I think that sector 0 is corrupt or something. I tried to retrieve the data with recovery data softwares such as "Getdata back for ntfs" and "Rstudio" with out any success. Is that the case of BSY stat? What about this product? can it help solve me problem? http://www.itrends.co.il/uid_40299/EVERCOOL-SONIC-HARD-DISK-COOLER-HD-SC.htm It cost 10$ Is it worth the money and the supply time? Or this one http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16835199002&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-RSSDailyDeals-_-na-_-na&AID=10521304&PID=3463938&SID= Which I didn't find the price of it.
  16. very good idea, after I take out the files out of it Any suggestions?
  17. Hi All, I have 1.5 tera of seagate (7200.11) The problem with the drive is that every short and randomally time, the drive disconect it'self and even the bios does not see it. I have to shut down the system completly, wait few minutes and than turning on the system. The HD is recognize again for few minutes and disconect again. It is a defective HD (100%). Seatools report that the drive is over 70 degree but it does not feel like that when I tuch it. I have to buckup all the data from it. How do I do that? How can I prevant from the drive to disconect or to expand the time before it does? Best Regards,
  18. How and where can I learned those things? What is the use for actionscript? Does it a grapic language?
  19. What are the "a lot more" that I have to know except flash and actionscript?
  20. How do I create such a game? http://games.nana10.co.il/Article/?ArticleID=614897&sid=144&typeid=5&GameN= What language development do I have to know? Many Thanks!
  21. Sounds interesting, but why do I have to see my MD5? Is that not an action behind the scenes? Do I have any use with my MD5? Behind of that, if I install any facebook application, the creator of that app can detact my facebook password?
  22. What does MD5 use for facebook applications?
  23. Hi all, Sometimes when I surf on the internet, I see that the website give me my "secret key". It's a combination of 32 digits and letters without any sense. Example for one of this: 827ccb0eea8a706c4c34a16891f84e7b What this is for? What this key tell me and what can I do with this? Thank you very much!
  24. Hi All, What knowledge do I have to get in order to creaste facebook applications? Many Thanks!
