    I have a 60GB HD that went weird after I interrupted a partition resize. It stopped being recognized by the BIOS. It spins okay, no noise; just won't be seen (have tried on different machines--clearly the drive at fault). Any suggestions on how to recover this drive without spending more than the drive is worth? (It seems mechanically sound and I have places I could use it.) I've tried Hitachi's drive utility, Seagate SeaTools, Gibson Spinrite, Partition Commander (none will see drive).

    Hitachi IC35L060AVVA07-0
    Partition resizing was being done with Partition Commander.

    This has happened to me before, sadly unless it is under warranty, there really is no bringing it back, just buy a new drive.
