I think I fried my HDD , I need the data back !
Hi, The story is as following:
I was connecting another Power supply to my pc, and my cd rom drive started to smoke. This is not a problem , but now my 60 GB Maxtor HDD won't react anymore!!!
I connected it to various PC's and the I feel that it's not spinning anymore!
I have some very important emails and family pictures on that hard drive , and I just bought some new cd's to back it all up , but I didn't do it yet (stupid me).
So is there any way I can get it working again , because I need that DATA !

The freezer trick!
Put your disk in an air-sealed plastic bag, let is rest in the freezer for a few minutes (not too long, or the air in your bag wil condensate/freeze)
It might work, it might not. In your case, I think it won't because the drive doesn't spin at all. The only way to get some data off the disk then is by sending it to a specialised lab. ($$$)
