So, my mom's Macbook just conked out yesterday...she said that it got really slow, and then froze. She then turned it off, and when she tried to boot it again, the folder with a question mark showed up on the boot screen. I took out the hard drive, and tried to boot it up externally, which was not successful. I've also tried Disk Warrior and Data Rescue II, neither of which can recognize the drive. However, it clicks for about 20 seconds when it powers up, then simply goes into a solid state where the drive is up and running, but no longer clicks or anything. So, it would seem that it can still get power, I just don't know why anything can't recognize it? I've tried the "Freezer Trick" where you put the drive in a plastic ziplock, and try to run it from in the freezer using a long cable to connect it externally to my MBP, but it still won't recognize. Do you guys have any other ideas of what I should try/do before I just give up? There are some pretty important business files and the like on the drive, and I really don't want to pony up $2k for a data recovery business. Any help would be appreciated...thanks! P.S.
