have you tried a different PC

yes. fails to mount on both Windows and Linux on that as well. No errors or anything, it simply hangs and the drive refuses to do anything. It does spin up, however.
do you think it'd be possible to remove it from its enclosure and plug it straight in?
Nope, it has some weird propietary connector builtin to the drive.
not even SATA? that's gay as balls
Have you tried whatever that file-recovery tool is? I was once able to get data off an unmountable disk using it.
It's called Recuva.
From what I remember, though, I had to format the partition before I could run it, and it couldn't recover plain text files (only Office files, images, stuff with recognizable headers).
Before you do that, try a few other things:
Open the disk manager, see if it appears at all. If you're having a problem like I did, you'll see that disk as an unformatted partition. If it doesn't show up at all, well, you're fucked.
If possible, make a raw partition copy before reformatting. What I did was just dd it to a file, but that was for a 4GB flash drive, not a much larger hard drive. But this means that, worst-case, you can't make things worse - you can at least recover it to how it is now, assuming there's no hardware problem.
Brt your avatar is no longer relevant
disk management freezes until I unplug the drive
and its a 1TB drive, I don't have anything large enough to store an image of the drive on
so I'm fucked. Woo!
device manager sees it and under linux its still a valid blockdevice, it seems the filesystem must be fucked up so bad that nothing will touch it
funny thing is, it was working fine until I rebooted a couple hours ago.
oh its also worth noting that the partition table is in fact fine, parted sees partitions without issues but they cannot be mounted (of course)
Guys lavacano is running IE under linux!!1
UP NOW, BACK!
BACK, BACK, BACK, BACK IT UP
I'm trying to disable all Windows Action Center Notifications by default in a RT7 image, for soem reason the custom registry won't work, nor will updating the keys afterwards.
I'm backing everything important up
I traded my old PC for a PS3 today, though since the last owner smoked I've spent hours ripping it apart and cleaning it. Unfortunately I don't have any compressed air or rubbing alcohol, so it still smells. I managed to break a spring in one of the controllers while taking it apart, but it was a shitty controller so I'll likely get a new one on eBay.
Ordered a new computer, gonna be fun to put together :). Not sure what I will use it for atm, but time will tell.
You have the money to just buy a brand new load of parts for no reason?
I got info about the Nexus 7 32GB version from one of local stores.
Too bad the internet is full of that stuff already.
I'm not sure if I should get the 16GB version now or wait for the 32GB one... *sigh*
why would you do that
why wouldn't you
I have played BF: BC2 for 23 hours according to Origin.
22 hours of it was updating.
If that's bad in your eyes then so be it.
