Wont initialize? Making a loud scraping noise?
There are a few ways you can get your data back, the freezer trick works if the head is touching the frezer trick works well, I have used it a few times. (10 years in IT)

EDIT -!# Use a USB HDD Caddy, Leave it in the freezer while you try to recover your data, remember that if it works your time is limited so get your data as fast as possible.#!-
If its the chip you're screwed unless you can find the same firmware board, even one revision out would be dangerous.

When you installed your SSD was it just plug and play or did you have to install software and or programs to make it run good in windows?
Hi Viper, the only thing I did was format it. It was very easy. I must say this again - best upgrade I've ever done for that amount of money. Loading times almost killed the experience for me before..now I'm flying more than waiting
EDIT: Windows 7 64bit…fyi

Gotcha, I was looking at getting one, everything larger then 32gb is astoundingly high in price. 32gb would barely leave room after a new install of win7 64 like I have. I would have to get a second one and either raid them or run the games from the second one. Load times are only a mild irritant to me now spending money irritates me more so I may wait a year for the prices to drop. Thanks for the input though.
That's the thing, my Windows 7 experience is fast enough right now without an SSD as boot drive. So I'm only using it for games that have long loading times. Currently I have DCS Blackshark, ROF, FC2, on there, with room for another 2 or 3 games.
It's basically a dedicated SSD for a few select SIMs that need help with loading times.
You are right though, waiting a bit would be better, so you can just put it all on one drive…I couldn't wait haha
