    I been using my HD for pretty long now. And today, when i boot the HD, it started to make noises, and it couldn't read the HD anymore. What is there to do? Nothin but buy a new HD?? the thing is that i don't wanna lose my data.

    the noises, was it a constant clicking? if so, i'm afraid you got a bad hard drive. how old is it? if your data is really important, there are places that can slow-scan your hard drive platters to recover files. but its pricey.
