I've never done this before, so try it at your own risk.
    a liveCD is an excellent way to do this .. it usually has a GUI to help with the mounting and umount. BUT DUN PUT UR HD IN THE FREEZER..cos wat i understand is u still have warranty on it.. if they see corrosion due to condensation i think your warranty is gone..

    i think my HD is screw big time ..

    1)I brought the HD to a friend and ask him to help me to recover my files. He try but failed.
    He managed to access C: but just cant access D: as well. The D: got stuck halfway and the pics cant be recover.
    But hes quite sure there isnt any physical fault with the HD.

    Right now I am running windows on a new W.Digtal HD. Connect the old HD to slave (IDE2) and run Linux. I got the LIVE CD ubuntu V5.1 (not sure if is the correct one) But I have no idea why is was stuck at a black screen and never get to load to Linux software. Suspect is HD problem tat cause this.

    Run windows with spoilt HD. And it prompt to scan my D:. I skip and restart computer.
    Will try tml morning ...

    Any more ideas?

    What is the make, model and size of your hard disk?
    What was use to attempt recovery?
