It was a Western Digital 320GB SATAII 16MB, WD3200KS-00PFB0 (don't
remember the name of the model).

Just curious what brand/make/model was it that failed? On Wed, 12 Dec 2007, Denis Wegge wrote:I tried putting it in the freezer, but that didn't help. Tests on another computer also show that the hard drive cannot be accessed. It seems like the data on the disk is definitely lost. The disk, however, has a 3 year warranty, so I'm going to return it.

For no obvious reason the partition can no longer be mounted. The following error occurs: knoppix@Knoppix:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 mount: /dev/sda1: can't read superblockLooks like your disk is dying or dead from your logs. You can try putting itin a plastic airtight bag then put it in the freezer and try again butotherwise if that does not work, its time for the trash bin (after you try)a dd and overwrite the disk but with that many bad sectors it looks like it has really gone south. Insert new disk, restore from backup. Justin.
