    Arrrrrrrrgggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    OK cgkanchi I was just clearing my throat, and that which passes for a brain

    Morgana~ gave a clear clue? This will take some courage and some guaranteed funding. You need the same drive, and swap the drive's controller card. I have done that with 100% success on several occasions (OK about 10 in six years).

    I must admit that Ihave not done it with a modern 200Mb drive but it certainly worked with 40's and 60's.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    might want to give the old school Spin Rite a whirl. I have recovered many a disk with a bad sector 0 error in the past. It takes a while and doesn't work all the time but it might be worth a try.


    *EDIT*


    Just saw that Nihil mentioned Spinrite in his first post. I would still recommend that you give it a try. It can take a couple of days on a very large drive that is reporting sector 0 bad though. I ran it on a 300gb drive a few weeks back and it took 4 days with deep inspection turned on.

    I recovered the drive though

    Give a man a match and he will be warm for a while, light him on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.
