Operating System Version:Any
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Fujitsu
Error Messages:None

First my I thank you for the help with 'Sleepy Pentium 4'

I now have a Fujitsu 20 Gig hard drive model MPG3204AT which works OK for up to half an hour from cold and then becomes inaccessible taking with it the CD drive on the same IDE channel.

After this time the BIOS cannot find the drives. The problem must be temperature related but happens in different computers so it is the drive to blame.

I would like to back up the data from this drive but I do'nt have time before the problem occurs.

Is there any future for this drive or should I throw it in the bin without wasting more time and effort.

Your help is appreciated

Probably the best thing to do is to purchase/install a new drive, install the operating system, then shutdown and reconnect to old drive as a slave drive (jumper setting on drive), reboot and once in Windows, quickly copy over your important files (e.g word/wordperfect files, address books....) before the drive stops working.
