I think you tried the LaCie Miracle. There are other titles and if all these fail the data recovery house is next.
"So I selected all, copy them, and pasted it to another external hard drive."
At that point we call it quits and dispose of the failed drive or try wiping it out and starting anew.
I ripped IDE 2.5" hard drive out of my wrecked laptop(WinXP), bought a USB enclosre case, and hooked up with my new laptop(WinXP).But I couldn't access to that drive.
So I tried this method discribed in this post.
Yes, it was successful and I could open the drive and saw files and documents intact.
So I selected all, copy them, and pasted it to another external hard drive.
Then the error occurred. After that I couldn't access to that drive any more. The error message is this.
Unable to mount 40 GB Filesystem

Failed to mount '/dev/sdc1': Input/output error
NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
