Aha, I missed that. Sorry!
Well then I'm puzzled again. Could it be a real "physical" hard drive crash
somehow induced by software? What happens if you just write a piece of code
that that checks for bad sectors? It looks a little bit like it can seek but
not read which might indicate missing low level format information like for
instance sector/track start sequence.
Björn, what did you actually try to do when all this happened? I'm sorry if
you wrote it an old mail somewhere. I get too many mails each day. :-I
