< check the options first
So I should download the Ubuntu software from the link, burn it to a empty DVD (witch i don't have @ the moment), shut down PC, connect the bad drive, set BIOS to boot from optical drive, run the installation to access the bad drive in order to see what is in there. *I don't quite understand how to do this step, because it's the 1st time I come across Ubuntu...
I think that the data got lost anyway...
But is there a chance of me getting the drive to work properly???
