wrote my problem in a bit more detail

my hdd has gone and died on me ... now if this was just one of my
hdd's i wouldn't really care, maxtor r givin me a new one and i can
download everythin again but this is my games hdd and as fun as my
games r i
dont want to have to start them all again

downloaded a handfull of data recovery utilities and they all seem
rubbish and cant help
the hdd has reverted back to "raw" mode as if it was a new hdd but i
somethin is still there as it still gets like 3/4 of the way through
up windows before it blue screens

the error its givin me now is ....

"the drive is not ready for use; its door may be open. plz check drive
make sure that a disk (physical location of drive here) is inserted
and the
drive door is closed"

anyone got any ideas ??

I got the same message when I connected my iPod, Drive F:, after a 15
min song tried to transfer. Does this mean the drive is dead? I
searched tons of support sites and couldn't find anything about this.
