Sorry, but I'm in a crunch. It's getting really late here and I still haven't gotten this slave drive to work, it has very important data. I just want this slave drive to work. That is all, just a new hard drive. GOD I HATE WINDOWS! I've been trying a bunch of PCs, making sure the pin settings are correct, rebooting, BIOS, everything is right but it just won't boot! It gets stuck at the damned logo screen with that annoying "progress" bar. The S.M.A.R.T. status says BAD. This really surprises me because it's supposed to be a new Seagate Barricuda. My last resort is to hook it up to our G4 (which I didn't want to mess with), and hope it reads the NTSF data so I can copy it and breathe again. Any help is very appreciated.
