    I have a 120 Gig Iomega external hard drive which crashed. I need to recover info from it. Can anyone recommend the best place for me to send it? The GeekSquad at Best Buy couldn't help. They said it is completely dead. All suggestions appreciated.

    Most independantly run computer hardware techs could do this. now how completely dead is it? because if its just a fuse blown or the motor inside died its something you can 'try' on your owe and save some money. if its not then you may want to check out htat tech support.

    Rather than relying on any electronics that may have failed in the case, can you take the hard drive out of it, connect it using either a different known working case or as a slave? Some cases are easier to do this with than others. Something I like to make sure of first.
