Maxtor 60GB HDD Error Code

My mates Maxtor 60GB HDD is showing an Error Code of:

"0200 Failure Fixed Disk 0" press F1 to Resume press F2 to enter setup.

can somebody tell us if this HDD or would it still be possible to get his photo's etc off it if we hook it up to my PC?

0200 Failure Fixed Disk 0 :

Fixed disk is not working or not configured properly.

Check to see if fixed disk is attached properly and then run Setup. Find out if the fixed-disk type is correctly identified. If not the HDD has failed.

Normally that is the advice given.

However the failure of the IDE controller in the motherboard can also trigger this error message. Here the HDD may still be OK.

So do try the HDD in another computer. Good luck.

(BTW, is your friend buying a branded computer or a custom-built one? )

He will be buying a custom built PC even though his PC use/needs are simple and straight forward.
