Default Drive recovery or file recovery

Hi,

My hard drive took a slight fall during access of a song. Now the song can't locate all the files for a full playback. I'm guessing this drive might be gone, since it hangs when I try to copy the song to another drive, but I figured I'd ask around first for any solutions. Has anyone had any luck with disk repair programs or retreiving files from disks.? I'm on Mac OSX and G5.

Thanks,

Bob

Are you getting any access at all? Do you get the message "this disc is unreadable by osx" (or similiar)?

If so, it could be a mechanical fault. and it won't repair with software.
before you waste money on any software repair try a demo.
many recovery software companies will let you browse for possible files with the demo, try that 1st. good luck.

i've never recovered a file from an unreadable drive.
