Ohhhh Maannnnnnnn!!!

Sure enough, while assisting a fellow Planeteer with a series of holding button commands while booting, then going in and running IDE drive read write checks, everything seemed ok...sort of...

Then upon attempting to boot the 2480HD a few days later I got the Found No Hard Drives message, then asking me to press enter to format.

I DON"T THINK SO PAL!

Later, I just got the no hard drives found with no option to format.

Breaking out the old Win XP system in storage, I pulled off the master drive selector jumper, threw it on the secondary ribbon block, added power, and booted the PC.

It recognized the drive in the Bios, but not in the WinXP OS.

Well, merd!

Tried another drive that's recognized on the 2480HD but locks up and won't load any songs. That one was recognized in the WinXP OS with four drive partitions; one had a song file corrupted, and the main songlist file was also corrupted. That one would be salvageable, but I decided to quick format it.

80GB, two minutes, top. 10GB partitions. Done.

So, looks like I'll be tossing the other drive unless I decide to recover it with a software recovery app. (on the Win98 PC in storage)

Too bad, I had some good stuff on that one.

Lesson. . . don't test stuff on your own hard drive if you think you remember the steps required.

Worse part is I actually had the procedure in a PDF file after I looked for it.

That sucks! Hopefully you have the data backed up, unless it wasn't too important.
