Today my hard drive started clicking on my Rev A 17" 1.8GHz iMac G5. This happened before, I think back in January and Apple charged me $50 to tell me how to resolve the clicking (since I was out of my 90 day phone support warranty). They had me take the back off and reset the pram and said that it was a software issue, so I had to pay them $50 since I do not have the 3 year AppleCare warranty. Well, it did resolve the issue for about 2 weeks. But it occassionally would still do it. I did not want to keep paying them $50 to call and complain about what I perceived as a failing hard drive. Well today while transferring some data from one partition to another, it hung up. I let it hang for 30 minutes before I manually powered it off (nothing else worked). I cannot restart it. There is no start up disk recognized. When I boot from the Panther, Tiger, or iMac G5 software disks it doesn't even see the internal iMac G5....it's just not there. Has anyone had this problem? Is this a dead hard drive? If so, is there any software out there that I can use to grab all of my data from it. I bought a firewire drive tonight, and am going to install OSX onto it and boot the iMac from it. But I want to be able to somehow retrieve my years of data from this iMac (but it's not recognized for your usual transfers or Carbon Copy Cloning). I ran the disk check from the original iMac G5 disks and everything came back okay (motherboard, memory, hard drive). So I'm at a loss of what to do. I'm still under my 1 year warranty, so they will replace it if it is faulty. But I really want to get the info off of it first (and safari bookmarks, documents, etc.). Any help would be super appreciated. Thanks!
