Firewire Casualty

Dan Computers

My first firewire hard drive, a 200GB external EZQuest drive, went kaput last night. It just doesn’t power up now. I took it out of the external case to discover that it’s a Western Digital drive – so, that makes sense. Gah. I have a possible solution (replacing the HD controller on the drive itself with one off of a new drive that I just bought and will be here tomorrow), but if that doesn’t work, I will have lost a lot of Audio Projects, my Edmunds data backups, and a whole bunch of other things. Major suckage. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!
