Recover a dead hard drive using dd
Authored by: originalmacbabe on Jan 30, '10 09:27:21PM

I, too, and having trouble getting the drive attached. It was my boot disk, now it is invisible. It is spinning, but not seen. Cannot boot into single user or target mode, won't be seen as an external drive either.

You are all talking about drives that are visible to the system. Is it possible to make this happen or force attachment or mounting? If so, please tell someone who is not afraid of using terminal, but doesn't really know much about UNIX.

Techtools, DW, Mount Me, etc. all tried. It is as if the drive simply isn't there.

I could swap the board with an identical drive but someone suggested that if the drive is spinning, this won't help.

Is there any hope for me copying this drive?

Tx
