The other day one of my co-workers came to me and said the Apple Store (Authorized Retailer) couldn't revive or recover her data off of her Santa Rosa MPB. They told her it would require and I am quoting here "a new screen board". Which would run her $900! Whatever the hell a screen board is!? To their credit the display, for reasons I do not understand, was not responding. Target disk mode was no dice either. I told her I wanted to take a look at it, I loaded up some data recovery software (ProSoft Data Rescue II)... and launched it into target disc mode. The software immediately recognized it and repaired it. I made a backup of her stuff onto my iMac and subsequently an external. I delivered this to her and SHE WAS ECSTATIC! She had already bought a new MBP and thought she had lost all of her stuff. She is a graphics design student, so this was bad. Long story short I asked her if I could tinker with it a little more and she said "sure, I didn't know what I was going to do with it anyway!" I take it home and a few minutes later wham bam the laptop runs like a top! Lucky me! Just wanted to share my story!
